In February 2015, Plains All American Pipeline announced plans to construct two new Delaware Basin pipelines, Avalon Oil Pipeline and State Line Oil Pipeline, and related gathering systems, and to expand its existing Blacktip station by adding 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.
The Blacktip station expansion and pipeline loop will include building 200,000 barrels of new operational tankage and associated pumping to provide an additional 200,000 bpd of pipeline capacity from the Blacktip station to Wink. The Blacktip station expansion and loop pipeline are expected to be completed in August 2015.
