The Pilgrim Pipelines scheme was formed by a former Koch industry executive and backed by a Los Angeles-based private equity firm, Pilgrim Pipeline Holdings LLC. The plan is to build one pipeline to transport oil south from two terminals in Albany, down through the Hudson River Valley, to Linden, New Jersey, where Phillips 66 owns the old Exxon Bayway refinery. Refined oil products -- such diesel, gasoline and jet fuel -- would flow north from Linden up to Albany through the second. Several lateral pipelines would provide deliveries of both oil and oil products at points between Albany and Linden.
