Exxon modifies Pegasus Pipeline to transport oilsands crude

IRVING, Texas - Exxon Mobil Corp. has boosted its capacity to transport Canadian oil sands crude from Patoka, Ill., to refineries in Texas and Louisiana.
Exxon Mobil has modified and expanded the capacity of its 1,381-kilometer Pegasus Pipeline by 50 percent to about 96,000 b/d, the company said in a June 17 news release.
The expansion followed a 2006 reversal of the direction of flow in the pipe, most of which had been idle for four years.
Pegasus runs from Patoka, Ill., where several Midwest and Texas pipelines converge, to Nederland, Texas, near Houston.
