Double Eagle Pipeline System Completed

October 2013, Vol. 240 No. 10

Double Eagle Pipeline LLC, a 50/50 joint venture between Magellan Midstream Partners and Kinder Morgan Energy Partners, L.P., has begun operation of the 85-mile western leg of its pipeline system moving condensate from Gardendale near Cotulla, TX in LaSalle County to Three Rivers, TX.

In May, the company began transporting condensate from Three Rivers to Magellan’s Corpus Christi terminal. Double Eagle’s new truck unloading and storage facility near Three Rivers began service in April.

The Double Eagle Pipeline system, operated by Kinder Morgan, includes 140 miles of new 12-inch pipeline connecting to a 50-mile, 14- and 16-inch pipeline segment owned by Kinder Morgan extending from Three Rivers to Magellan’s marine and storage terminal in Corpus Christi. Initial capacity of the pipeline is 100,000 bpd but can be expanded to 150,000 bpd with additional pumps.
