US pipeline operator Sinclair Transportation and Texas-based independent petroleum refiner Holly Corporation have begun the final construction phase on their refined products pipeline between Utah and Nevada.
The 406-mile UNEV pipeline will move product from Salt Lake City, Utah, to terminals in Cedar City, Utah, and in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Construction will begin immediately on five of the seven construction spreads. UNEV expects mechanical completion of this pipeline in early 2011, with service to begin later in 2011. Construction of the Cedar City, Utah and Las Vegas, Nevada terminals are nearing also completion.
This is a valuable and important infrastructure project which will provide for the long-term cost effective supply of transportation fuels to southwest Utah and Las Vegas, Matt Clifton, chairman and CEO of Holly, states.
