ALBUQUERQUE TERMINAL & BREAKOUT TANK
Protecting You and The Environment
Call 911, and then call the Vecenergy Albuquerque Terminal at (505) 246-4409.
The Albuquerque Terminal is located near the end of the Magellan pipeline in Albuquerque, NM. The Vecenergy facility is used exclusively to receive product from pipeline or truck/rail and distribute the product via truck. Tank #25 has the capability to act as a surge tank for the pipeline and therefore is considered a breakout tank; the Magellan pipeline has a relief valve that will discharge into the tank in the event of a surge on the pipeline. Note that Vecenergy does not operate a pipeline at this terminal.
