NuStar Energy is expanding its Permian crude system with three projects to offer additional transportation capacity to shippers.
The expansion number two will be capable of reaching multiple downstream markets through interconnects at Colorado City, Texas as crude oil throughput volumes to certain destinations approach the system’s capacity.
The three projects will comprise Big Spring South Inlet, Colorado City Mainline Expansion and County Line Loop.
Once completed, these projects are expected to provide 70,000 barrels per day of additional capacity on the Permian crude system. 90% of such additional capacity will be available for volume commitments during the open season.
The bidding season, which opened on January 9 and will extend for at least 30 days, will give potential shippers the opportunity to make volume commitments and sign a transportation services agreement from designated origin point segments to NuStar’s Colorado City, Texas Terminal.
