CALGARY, Alberta Jan 23 Kinder Morgan Energy
Partners LP said on Wednesday that shippers on its
routinely overbooked Trans Mountain oil pipeline system between
Alberta and the Pacific Coast will be limited to just 29 percent
of their hoped-for volumes in February.
Kinder Morgan said capacity on the system, which carries
Canadian crude to the Vancouver-area and Washington state
refineries, was over-nominated by 71 percent.
Nominations have exceeded capacity since late 2010.
For next month, Kinder Morgan said total accepted
nominations for the system are 282,010 barrels per day for the
Trans Mountain pipeline, 128,322 bpd for the Puget Sound line
and 77,772 bpd for the Westridge Dock.
