Including Enterprise’s existing South Texas infrastructure, this system is now in service from Corpus Christi to Beaumont.
The next segment between Beaumont and Lake Charles, LA is scheduled to be completed in mid-2015. The final segment from Lake Charles to the Mississippi River should be done by the end of 2015. Aegis will have a capacity expandable to 425,000 bpd.
