Enterprise and Enbridge to expand Seaway crude oil pipeline

 

 

HOUSTON, US/ CALGARY, CANADA:  Enterprise Products Partners LP and Enbridge Inc announced the start of concurrent binding open seasons to solicit capacity commitments from shippers for an expansion of the Seaway crude oil pipeline and a new pipeline that will be built from Enterprise’s ECHO terminal to Port Arthur, Texas. Enterprise and Enbridge recently announced plans to reverse the flow direction of Seaway crude oil pipeline, enabling it to transport crude oil from the oversupplied hub in Cushing, Oklahoma to the U.S. Gulf Coast.

The initial 150,000 barrels per day of capacity on the reversed system could be available by the second quarter 2012. Following pump station additions and modifications, which are expected to be completed by the first quarter 2013, capacity would increase to 400,000 barrels per day, assuming a mix of light and heavy grades of crude oil.
