In addition, Koch Pipeline has ongoing relations with other crude distribution systems that further its ability to provide services in this growing production area. Koch Pipeline currently operates about 4,000 miles of pipelines that transport crude oil, refined products, natural gas liquids and chemicals.

“With the expanded activity in the Eagle Ford production formation, we will be able to transport more domestically produced crude oil and gas condensates to our customer, Flint Hills Resources,” said Kim Penner, president of Koch Pipeline. “We are well positioned to build upon this system to help meet the needs of the producers in this new production area.”

“This Koch Pipeline expansion fits well with Flint Hills Resources’ plan to run more domestic crude at our Corpus Christi refinery,” says Brad Urban, senior vice president of supply and trading for Flint Hills.

“We have plans to further grow our system’s capacity as needed to meet new production increases,” Penner said.
