Mike Shelton, Advantage President, stated further, “We look forward to partnering with Blueknight Energy Partners and additional investors to build this new pipeline, which will deliver significant value to producers in this area in need of additional infrastructure. Construction will commence soon and we expect phase I of the project to be operational by the end of May. The pipeline will be connected to the Longhorn Pipeline and will carry crude to terminals and refineries in the Gulf Coast area.”
