Pipeline and Gathering
Our pipeline and gathering assets are positioned to support crude oil supply options for Western’s El Paso and Gallup refineries as well as third parties and consist of crude oil pipelines and gathering assets located primarily in the Delaware Basin and in the Four Corners area of Northwestern New Mexico. These systems gather and transport crude oil by pipeline from various production locations to Western’s refineries utilizing approximately 685 miles of pipeline, crude oil storage tanks with a total combined active shell storage capacity of 828,000 barrels, truck loading and unloading locations and pump stations.
Western’s St. Paul Park refinery in Minnesota is strategically located with direct access, primarily via the Minnesota Pipeline, to what the Company believes are abundant supplies of advantaged crude oils. The complexity of refinery operations allows it to process a variety of light, heavy, sweet and sour crudes into higher value refined products.
