    Construction of Seaway Pipeline loop completed

    Enterprise Products Partners LP and Enbridge Inc.

    Enterprise Products Partners LP (NYSE:EPD) and Enbridge Inc. (NYSE/TSX:ENB) report that the 512-mile loop of the Seaway Pipeline system from Cushing, Oklahoma, to the Jones Creek storage and terminal facility near Freeport, Texas, is mechanically complete. The new 30-inch Seaway Loop Pipeline is expected to more than double the capacity of the Seaway system to 850,000 BPD.

    The Jones Creek facility is connected to Enterprise’s ECHO crude oil storage facility in Houston by a 65-mile, 36-inch pipeline. Construction of a 100-mile, 30-inch pipeline from ECHO to Beaumont/Port Arthur, Texas, is expected to be completed in July. Commissioning of the Seaway Loop, as well as the new pipeline from ECHO to Beaumont/Port Arthur will continue throughout the third quarter of 2014.

    In addition to the pipeline that transports crude oil from Cushing to the Gulf Coast, the Seaway system comprises a terminal and distribution network originating in Texas City, Texas, which serves refineries locally and in the Houston area. The Seaway system also includes dock facilities at Freeport and Texas City.

    The Seaway Pipeline system is owned by Seaway Crude Pipeline Company LLC, a 50/50 joint venture owned by affiliates of Enterprise Products Partners and Enbridge.

    PAA and Enterprise Products plan Eagle Ford JV Pipeline expansions, new terminal

    Wed, Nov 5, 2014

    Plains All American Pipeline LP (NYSE: PAA) and Enterprise Products Partners LP (NYSE: EPD) are constructing a new condensate gathering system into their Three Rivers terminal and doubling the mainline capacity on the Eagle Ford Joint Venture (JV) Pipeline from Three Rivers to Corpus Christi, Texas. These expansions are supported by a long-term production commitment and are expected to be placed into service in the third quarter of 2015.

    The Eagle Ford JV Pipeline system is a 50/50 joint venture between Plains and Enterprise that delivers crude oil and condensate via pipeline from Gardendale in La Salle County, Texas, to the Three Rivers and Corpus Christi refineries and to other markets via marine transport facilities at Corpus Christi. Furthermore, the pipeline supplies the Houston-area market through a connection to the Enterprise Crude Pipeline terminal at Lyssy in Wilson County, Texas.

    As part of the expansion, Plains and Enterprise will construct a new gathering system with 55 miles of gathering and trunkline pipeline that will connect Karnes County and Live Oak County production areas to the Three Rivers terminal. The companies will also construct an additional 70-mile, 20-inch pipeline from Three Rivers to Corpus Christi, as well as expand storage and pumping capacity at Three Rivers.

    Combined with the previously announced expansion, this project effectively loops the Eagle Ford JV Pipeline from Gardendale to Corpus Christi and increases the JV system capacity to over 600,000 barrels per day. The Eagle Ford JV Pipeline will be connected with the Cactus pipeline, which Plains is constructing from the Permian Basin at McCamey to the Eagle Ford JV Pipeline at Gardendale.

    Plains and Enterprise will also build a new terminal on the Corpus Christi ship channel to support the increased volumes to be shipped via pipeline to the region. The dock will have the capacity to handle a variety of ocean-going vessels and is planned to be in service by 2017.
