Enterprise Products Partners L.P. has executed long-term agreements that support development of a 416-mile, 24-inch pipeline to transport crude oil and condensate from the company’s Midland, TX terminal to its Sealy storage facility west of Houston.
From Sealy, the new pipeline would link to Enterprise’s ECHO terminal through an interconnect with the Rancho II pipeline, which is scheduled to be in service shortly. Through ECHO, customers will have direct access to every refinery in Houston, Texas City, Beaumont and Port Arthur as well as Enterprise’s dock facilities.
The new pipeline will be capable of providing up to 540,000 bpd of take-away capacity for growing volumes of crude oil, and condensate from the Permian Basin. Service is expected to begin in the second quarter of 2017.
