Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P. (NYSE: SXL) announced today a successful open season for Sunoco Pipeline L.P. and Inland Corporation’s Allegheny Access pipeline project, which will transport refined products from the Midwest to eastern Ohio and western Pennsylvania markets. Enough binding commitments from shippers have been received to enable the project to move forward.

Allegheny Access is expected to have an initial capacity to deliver 85,000 barrels per day with the ability to scale up to 110,000 barrels per day. The project will use a combination of new and existing assets in Ohio and Pennsylvania and over the course of construction up to 600 people could be employed. The Allegheny Access pipeline is expected to be operational in the first half of 2014.

Michael J. Hennigan, Sunoco Logistics’ President and Chief Executive Officer said: “The Allegheny Access pipeline will give refiners and marketers in the Midwest convenient and cost-effective access to eastern Ohio and western Pennsylvania markets, including Pittsburgh. We’re eager to continue our work on the project.”

Pennsylvania Governor Tom Corbett said: “This project is a significant investment in our nation’s energy infrastructure that has two important benefits for the people of Pennsylvania. It will create hundreds of construction jobs and will secure a steady and direct supply of transportation fuels to people in the greater Pittsburgh region.”
