Kinder Morgan Inc. on April 12 said it launched a binding open season to solicit commitments for a proposed expansion of the SFPP LP pipeline system that runs from El Paso, Texas, to Tucson, Arizona.

The open season began on the morning of April 12 and is scheduled to end on May 26, the company said in a press release.

Kinder Morgan said the expansion is estimated to provide approximately 10,000 barrels per day (bbl/d) to 12,000 bbl/d on a gasoline equivalent basis of incremental capacity.

The lie is available for the transportation of gasoline, jet and diesel products. The total amount of the expansion capacity available is scalable and will be dependent on the overall level of interest SFPP receives during the open season, Kinder Morgan said.

The open season process provides potential shippers the opportunity to obtain firm capacity on the expansion by making ship-or-pay volume commitments to SFPP during the binding open season time frame.

Kinder Morgan said additional documents and details related to the open season will be made available upon execution of a confidentiality agreement with SFPP.

Kinder Morgan’s SFPP system consists of several lines, including the 400-mile East Line, which originates in El Paso.

Those interested in obtaining more detailed information about this open season and a copy of the form confidentiality agreement should contact Doug Meyers, director of business development in Kinder Morgan’s Products Pipelines group, at or (713) 420-2856.
