Learn more about the Wink to Webster Pipeline system

The Wink to Webster Pipeline LLC is a joint venture among affiliates of ExxonMobil (ExxonMobil), Plains All American Pipeline, L.P. (Plains) and Lotus Midstream, LLC (Lotus).

The new common-carrier pipeline system will provide more than 1 million barrels per day of crude oil and condensate capacity and will be constructed from the Permian Basin in West Texas to the Texas Gulf Coast. The Wink to Webster Texas-based pipeline system will have origin points at Wink and Midland to multiple locations near Houston, including Webster and Baytown, with connectivity to Texas City and Beaumont.

Route

Wink to Webster Pipeline system will extend approximately 650 miles between origination points in Wink and Midland and delivery points near Houston. The pipeline will provide an efficient and reliable option to transport Permian Basin production to market destinations in Texas.

The pipeline is expected to begin operations in 2021 and will transport more than 1 million barrels of crude oil and condensate per day to refining markets along the Gulf Coast of Texas. The project will significantly increase the amount of oil Texas can produce from the bottlenecked Permian Basin.
