The Diamond Pipeline is a 440-mile, 20 inch pipeline capable of transporting up to 200,000 barrels per day of domestic sweet crude from Cushing, Okla. to Memphis, Tenn. Diamond Pipeline LLC is a joint venture between San Antonio, Texas-based Valero and Plains All American Pipeline, the operator.
The Diamond Pipeline provides a direct and reliable route to transport crude oil from the Plains Cushing, Okla. terminal to Valero’s Memphis Refinery, which produces gasoline, diesel and jet fuel for residents in Arkansas and several other states in the region. The pipeline enhances the refinery’s long-term viability and assists in providing greater energy independence for our nation.
Commitment to Safety
Diamond Pipeline LLC is committed to operating and maintaining the pipeline in a safe and reliable manner, and to meeting or exceeding regulatory standards. The Diamond Pipeline includes important safety elements that meet or exceed federal, state and municipal safety, design, construction and operating stands, such as using a thicker-wall pipe than required by regulations, increased depth of cover to reduce susceptibility to third-party damage, and around-the-clock remote monitoring and use of real-time leak detection technologies.
