Kinder Morgan's Trans Mountain oil line apportioned next month
CALGARY, Alberta, Nov 22 (Reuters) - Kinder Morgan Energy Partners LP said on Thursday that shippers on its routinely overbooked Trans Mountain oil pipeline system between Alberta and the Pacific Coast will be limited to just 30 percent of their hoped-for volumes in December. Kinder Morgan said capacity on the system, which carries Canadian crude to the Vancouver-area and Washington state refineries, was over-nominated by 70 percent. Nominations have exceeded capacity since late 2010. For next month, Kinder Morgan said total accepted nominations for the system are 279,292 barrels per day for the Trans Mountain pipeline, 132,696 bpd for the Puget Sound line, and 77,518 bpd for the Westridge Dock.
