Seaway Pipeline Expansion Nearing Completion

February 2013, Vol. 240 No. 2

Late last year, final work was being performed on the Seaway Crude Oil Pipeline Company LLC’s Seaway Pipeline expansion to increase capacity from 150,000 bpd to 400,000 bpd.

In order to complete the remaining pump station connections, transportation service was temporarily suspended on the 500-mile, 30-inch pipeline before being resumed.

Seaway Crude Pipeline Company LLC is a 50/50 joint venture owned by affiliates of Enterprise Products Partners and Enbridge Inc. In addition to the pipeline that transports crude oil from Cushing to the Gulf Coast, the Seaway system is comprised of a terminal and distribution network originating in Texas City which serves refineries locally and in the Houston area. The Seaway system also includes dock facilities at Freeport and Texas City.
