Capline

The Capline Subcommittee was disbanded after the implementation of Light Louisiana Sweet specifications on the Capline pipeline system. The Light Louisiana Sweet common stream on the Capline transportation system has specifications encompassing API gravity, sulfur, vanadium and nickel, microcarbon residue and distillation points. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first time common stream crude oil specifications have ever embraced parameters in addition to sulfur and gravity. An enforcement policy is in place to ensure the LLS specifications are met.
