Enterprise, Enbridge make first delivery of crude oil in Texas

HOUSTON, US/CALGARY, CANADA: Enterprise Products Partners and Enbridge Inc delivered the initial volumes of crude oil through the seaway pipeline in the Jones Creek facility, near Freeport, Texas. The arrival marks the first southbound delivery of crude by pipeline from the oversupplied Cushing hub, and gives producers access to all of the major refineries in Texas.

Since 19 May 2012, when crude oil began flowing through the seaway pipeline, volumes have steadily increased towards the current capacity of 150,000 barrels per day. Work is underway and on schedule to add incremental pumping capacity that would allow the existing seaway pipeline to transport up to 400,000 barrels per day by the first quarter of 2013.
