State Line Oil Pipeline is an operating oil pipeline in Texas, USA.
The pipeline runs from Culberson County to Wink, Texas, running along the Texas-New Mexico state line.
- Owner: Plains All American
- Capacity: 150,000 barrels per day
- Length: 96.6 kilometers / 60 miles
- Diameter: 16-inches
- Start Year: 2016
In February 2015, Plains All American Pipeline announced plans to construct two new Delaware Basin pipelines, Avalon Oil Pipeline and State Line 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.
The 60-mile, 16" State Line pipeline will connect Culberson County to Wink, Texas, running along the Texas-New Mexico state line. It will connect Delaware Basin production in southern Eddy and Lea counties, New Mexico and northern Loving, Reeves, and Culberson counties, Texas to the existing network of Plains All American Permian Basin assets. The pipeline will be capable of transporting up to 150,000 bpd of batched crude oil and condensate. State Line is expected to be brought into service in phases beginning in early 2016 and concluding in mid-2016, with completion of the associated gathering system anticipated by early 2016.
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.
