Seaway to Begin Open Season

Seaway Crude Pipeline Company LLC (“Seaway”) has announced a binding open season for committed service on expansion capacity of its existing system originating in Cushing, Oklahoma and extending to the Texas Gulf Coast. 

The expansion would debottleneck and optimize the system, principally through pump upgrades.

The expansion could provide an incremental 200,000 barrels per day (bpd), or more, of light crude capacity and include further quality enhancements in the segregation of heavy and light crude shipments.

Further expansion is possible, depending on customer demand.

Up to 100,000 BPD of initial light crude expansion capacity could be available beginning in the second half of 2020, with the expansion fully in-service in 2022. The final capacity for committed and uncommitted service would be determined during the open season.

Seaway is offering a competitive fee schedule, starting at $0.99 per barrel for light crude oil pipeline transportation from Cushing. Fees will vary depending on volume, destination, and term.

Seaway features access to a fully integrated midstream network of pipelines, storage facilities, and export terminals along the Gulf Coast and provides connectivity to every refinery in Houston, Freeport, Texas City, and Beaumont/Port Arthur.

The open season begins at 9 a.m. CST on December 16, 2019 and continues until 5 p.m. CST on February 14, 2020.

Additional details, including the open season terms and the required transportation services agreement form, will be distributed to potential shippers who execute a confidentiality agreement.

Interested shippers should direct commercial inquiries and requests for information to Shane Sullivan at (713) 381-6550 or

Seaway Crude Pipeline Company LLC is a 50/50 joint venture owned by affiliates of Enterprise Products Partners L.P. and Enbridge Inc.

In addition to the pipeline that transports crude oil from Cushing to the Gulf Coast, the Seaway system includes a terminal and distribution network originating in Texas City, Texas, which serves refineries locally and in the Houston area, and dock facilities at Freeport and Texas City.
