Koch Pipeline Company Expanding South Texas Crude Oil Pipeline Capabilities

December 2009 Vol. 236 No. 12

Koch Pipeline Company, L.P. will increase its crude oil pipeline transportation capacity by about 25 percent in January 2010.

Flint Hills Resources will process the additional supplies from the Eagle Ford production at its Corpus Christi, TX, refinery.

Koch Pipeline has about 540 miles of active crude oil transportation lines in 16Texas counties. In addition, the company has ongoing relations with other crude distribution systems that further its ability to provide services in this growing production area.

“We have plans to further grow our system’s capacity as needed to meet new production increases,” said Kim Penner, president of Koch Pipeline. The company says it currently operates about 4,000 miles of pipelines, transporting crude oil, refined products, natural gas liquids and chemicals.
