Background

Expansion Project

In February 2015, Plains All American Pipeline announced plans to construct two new Delaware Basin pipelines, an expansion of the Avalon Oil Pipeline and the State Line Oil Pipeline, and related gathering systems, to expand its existing Blacktip station and to construct a 20" loop line from Blacktip station to Wink, Texas. These new infrastructure builds in West Texas and New Mexico will support PAA's previously announced 24" Basin Pipeline loop from Wink to Midland and new 12" pipeline from Monahans to Crane.[1]

The 32-mile, 12" Avalon Extension pipeline will extend the Avalon pipeline, which runs from the PAA Avalon station in northwest Loving County to its Blacktip station in southeast Loving County, Texas, into Culberson County, Texas, and is capable of transporting up to 100,000 barrels per day (bpd) of crude oil from northern Loving and Culberson Counties. The line and two new truck unloading facilities at Orla, Texas and at Highway 285 are expected to be brought into service in phases beginning in July 2015, with total system completion, including the associated gathering system, scheduled for September 2015.[1]
