TULSA, Okla., March 31, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Magellan Midstream Partners, L.P. (NYSE: MMP) announced today that it plans to construct a condensate splitter at its terminal in Corpus Christi, Texas under a fee-based, take-or-pay agreement with Trafigura AG. The project also includes construction of more than one million barrels of storage, dock improvements and two additional truck rack bays at Magellan's terminal as well as pipeline connectivity between Magellan's terminal and Trafigura AG's nearby facility.
The splitter will be capable of processing 50,000 barrels per day (bpd) of condensate, fully supported by a long-term commitment from Trafigura AG. If warranted by additional demand, Magellan could construct an additional 50,000 bpd splitter at this facility.
"This condensate splitter is a strategic expansion of Magellan's service offerings, and we are pleased to work with Trafigura AG to provide an industry solution for increased domestic condensate production while delivering an attractive fee-based return for our investors," said Michael Mears, Magellan's president and chief executive officer. "Our Corpus Christi terminal is ideally situated to receive condensate from the Eagle Ford shale, including shipments via our Double Eagle pipeline joint venture, and to offer flexible services and a variety of market options for our customer."
"This agreement will provide another outlet for producers of domestic crude and condensate. We believe Corpus Christi is advantaged over other locations and these investments, along with our other assets in the area, are critical to providing long-term solutions for the producers," said Jeff Kopp, Trafigura AG's director of North America oil trading.
Magellan expects the condensate splitter and related infrastructure to cost approximately $250 million and to be operational during the second half of 2016, subject to receipt of necessary permits and authorizations.

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud.

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
