Kinder Morgan Energy Partners Expands Eagle Ford Shale Footprint

November 2013, Vol. 240 No. 11

Kinder Morgan Energy Partners, L.P. has entered into an agreement with a large Eagle Ford Shale producer to extend the Kinder Morgan Crude and Condensate (KMCC) pipeline farther into the Eagle Ford Shale in South Texas.

KMP will invest $74 million to build an 18-mile, 24-inch lateral pipeline northwest from its DeWitt Station to a new facility in Gonzales County where KMP will construct 300,000 bbls of storage, a pipeline pump station and truck offloading facilities. The lateral will have a capacity of 300,000 bpd and will enable Kinder Morgan to batch Eagle Ford crude and condensate from the new Gonzales Station via KMCC to its delivery points on the Houston Ship Channel and/or the soon to be completed Sweeny Lateral pipeline serving the Phillips 66 Sweeny Refinery in Brazoria County.
