Bayou Bridge Pipeline started commercial operations on the 30-inch segment of the Bayou Bridge Pipeline from Nederland, TX, to Lake Charles, LA. The project is owned by subsidiaries of Phillips 66 Partners, Energy Transfer Partners and Sunoco Logistics Partners.
In addition, as a result of successful binding open season, the joint venture said the Louisiana segment of the pipeline from Lake Charles to St. James will be 24 inches in diameter.
At Lake Charles, Bayou Bridge has agreed to connect to Phillips 66 Partners’ Clifton Ridge terminal and Citgo’s Lake Charles refinery. At St. James, Bayou Bridge has agreed to connections to Plains Marketing and NuStar Energy crude oil terminals. Bayou Bridge also is in discussions with additional parties to connect to the extensive crude oil terminal infrastructure in the region.
Bayou Bridge remains on schedule with respect to the 24-inch segment to St. James, and commercial operations for this segment are expected to begin in the second half of 2017.
