Brief Description

  • The Basin system is a primary route for transporting crude oil from the Permian Basin (in west Texas and southern New Mexico) to Cushing, Oklahoma, for further delivery to Mid-Continent and Midwest refining centers.
  • Gathering systems collect crude from various parts of southeastern New Mexico and western Texas and deliver it to Midland for transport on the Basin Pipeline.
  • Because the Basin Pipeline is segmented and telescoping, the throughput capacity differs depending on the segment.
  • Current capacities range from 240,000 barrels per day to 450,000 barrels per day.
  • The Basin system can also receive foreign crude and Gulf of Mexico production at its Wichita Falls, TX station for further transportation to Cushing
  • The Basin system is subject to tariff rates regulated by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (“FERC”).
  • The system also includes approximately 6 million barrels of tankage
