HOUSTON, Jan. 11 -- Harvest Pipeline Co. has started to construct a 25-mile crude oil pipeline from near Cotulla in LaSalle County, Tex., to an interconnect near Fowlerton, Tex., with its existing 140-mile Pearsall pipeline.
The lateral represents the next phase of Harvest’s continuing expansion of its Arrowhead Pipeline in an effort to increase shipments of Eagle Ford crude to refining and terminal facilities in Corpus Christi.
Harvest expects the Cotulla line to enter service in the third quarter. The Cotulla line will be supported with volume commitments from large producers in LaSalle and Dimmit counties, according to Harvest.
Harvest operates pipeline systems running through the Eagle Ford trend from Maverick County to San Patricio County, Tex. Harvest also operates oil and gas gathering and mainline systems across south Texas and Louisiana.
Koch Pipeline Co. LP received shareholder approval to build a 120,000-b/d Eagle Ford pipeline to Corpus Christi in December 2010 (OGJ Online, Dec. 17, 2010).
