Shell Completes Phase 2 Of Ho-Ho Pipeline

February 2014, Vol. 241 No. 2

Late last year, Shell completed Phase 2 of its project to reverse the flow direction of the Houma-to-Houston (Ho-Ho) pipeline. The system provides Gulf Coast refineries pipeline access to additional sources of the growing crude production from the inland oil plays in the Eagle Ford, Bakken and other shale regions.

Phases 3 and 4 of the project will add pump stations to increase capacity of the Texas to Louisiana pipeline segments (20-inch and 22-inch) to 250,000 bpd and 375,000 bpd of crude oil, respectively. These capacities assume a medium crude type and standard batching. The final phases will be completed in early 2014.
