Background

The proposed pipeline system would deliver crude oil and condensate from Wink and Midland, Texas to the existing Buckeye Texas Partners' refining and export facilities in Corpus Christi, Texas. The pipeline is currently expected to be 24 inches in diameter with a total capacity of up to 400,000 barrels per day. Buckeye currently plans to hold a binding open season for the South Texas Gateway pipeline during the third quarter of 2017, with the expectation that the pipeline will be in service in 2019.[1]

In May 2018 Buckeye announced that it was cancelling the pipeline and would instead be investing in the South Texas Gateway Terminal.[2]
