The Mid-South region is important to growing America’s economy. The Byhalia Connection Pipeline – a crude oil pipeline system that will run nearly 49 miles from Memphis to Marshall County, Mississippi – will help strengthen the region’s economic vitality and America’s energy independence. The Byhalia Connection Pipeline will connect two existing crude oil pipelines in the area:
•The Diamond Pipeline, which provides the Valero Memphis Refinery with crude oil to produce gasoline and jet fuels used by people in eight states throughout this region, including Tennessee and Mississippi
• The Capline Pipeline, which runs between central Illinois and the U.S Gulf Coast
Byhalia Connection is currently in the pre-construction and easement acquisition phase of the project. We’re targeting to start construction in 2021 and be in service approximately nine months later.
Pipelines are one of the safest ways to transport energy, and connecting these two pipelines increases the efficiency of crude oil transportation in the U.S.
Byhalia Connection is owned by Byhalia Pipeline LLC, an entity that is part of a joint venture between a subsidiary of Plains All American Pipeline, L.P. (Plains) and a subsidiary of Valero, and will be constructed and operated by a subsidiary of Plains.
