The Capline System is a strategic high-volume transportation resource that cost effectively links Gulf of Mexico and foreign crude supplies to key refineries throughout the Midcontinent area of the United States.
Your fastest connection to key Midcontinent markets
With its hallmark speed and efficiency, the Capline System has demonstrated for more than 30 years its capacity for reliably and safely reaching a broad array of Midwestern markets.

In just five days, the system can move up to 1.2 million barrels per day of crude oil from St. James, Louisiana, to Patoka, Illinois—more than 650 miles away.
