In 2003 Enbridge acquired 60% of the pipeline from Shell.[1] As of 2017 it is operated by Marathon Petroleum. There are two parts to the pipeline. A 22-inch pipeline collects crude oil from the Platte Crude Oil Pipeline and Ozark Crude Oil Pipeline in Wood River, Illinois, and delivers it to a 500,000-barrel terminal at Patoka, Illinois. It is 57 miles long with capacity of 215,000 barrels per day (bpd). Another 12-inch pipeline transports crude oil received in Roxanna, Illinois from the Ozark pipeline system to Marathon's tank farm in Patoka, Illinois, and is 58 miles long with capacity of 99,000 bpd. This section is leased from a third party under a lease that expires in 2020.[4][5]
