The 650-mile Wink to Webster Pipeline System will transport more than 1 million barrels per day of crude oil and condensate from the Permian Basin to the Gulf Coast. As a result, the pipeline system will contribute to the expansion of production in West Texas and support new industry investments along the Gulf Coast.
Made from American steel pipe, this safe and reliable pipeline system will create thousands of well-paying construction jobs, reduce truck traffic and provide millions of tax dollars to Texas communities.
The pipeline system will provide needed capacity to transport the growing production of energy resources out of the Permian Basin. The 650-mile pipeline system will have origin points in Wink and Midland, Texas; multiple destinations in the Houston market, including Webster and Baytown; and connections to Texas City and Beaumont.
Wink to Webster Pipeline System LLC is a joint venture among affiliates of ExxonMobil; Plains All American Pipeline, L.P.; MPLX LP; Delek US; Lotus Midstream, LLC; and Rattler Midstream LP. Although not participating in the joint venture, an affiliate of Enterprise Products Partners L.P. has invested in the pipeline project and will serve as construction manager for the Midland-to-Webster segment of the Wink to Webster pipeline system. Plains will serve as the construction manager of the Wink-to-Midland segment, and ExxonMobil Pipeline Company will operate the system on behalf of the joint venture.
Construction of the pipeline system will begin in earnest in 2020 and is expected to end in 2021. The project will leverage existing pipeline corridors and advanced construction techniques to help limit community and environmental impacts.
The Wink to Webster Pipeline System will strengthen our nation’s energy security and support American energy independence. It will enable Texas oil from the Permian Basin to reach Gulf Coast refineries and other key oil markets. Domestic energy resources combined with essential energy infrastructure make our nation less dependent on foreign oil.
