Background

The 435-mile, 22-inch pipeline connects the oil market hub at Cushing, Oklahoma, with the refining market in Wood River, Illinois.

In 2003, Enbridge acquired the pipeline from Shell for US$131 million.[1] In February 2017 MPLX LP of Marathon Petroleum agreed to acquire the 230,000 bpd Ozark crude oil pipeline from Enbridge for US$220 million.

Expansion Projects

Woodpat (Wood River-to-Patoka) Expansion

According to June 2020 data from the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA), the expansion project, which runs through 58 miles of Illinois, expanded the pipeline's total capacity from 215,000 barrels per day to 360,000 barrels per day. The expansion was in steps; capacity first increased to 345,000 barrels per day in mid-2018, and was up to 360,000 barrels per day by the end of the year. Crude oil flows onto Woodpat from the Ozark Pipeline in Wood River, Illinois. Ozark had its capacity increased to 360,000 barrels per day at the same time as Woodpat. Woodpat runs parallel to the Roxpat Pipeline, which is part of the same pipeline system.[3]
