NEW YORK (Reuters) - Magellan Midstream Partners (MMP.N) is planning a restart on its Bridgetex and Longhorn crude oil pipelines either late on Friday or early Saturday pending successful testing, according to a shipper notice seen by Reuters on Friday.
The two pipelines, which move crude from West Texas’s Permian shale play into the U.S. Gulf Coast, were shut this weekend after Storm Harvey swept through the Houston area.
Inbound crude at Crane and Colorado City in Texas will be allowed to restart after the two pipelines resume operations, the notice said. It added that movements south of East Houston on Magellan’s Houston distribution system would tentatively restart Saturday.
