HOUSTON, Apr. 13 -- Harvest Pipeline Co. will build a 12-in. OD pipeline to bring additional quantities of Eagle Ford shale crude and condensate to Corpus Christi, Tex. The project will expand the capacity and reach of Harvest’s existing Arrowhead pipeline system, particularly for shippers in LaSalle County.
The pipeline will have an initial capacity of more than 50,000 b/d, expandable to 90,000 b/d and is underpinned by long-term arrangements with Anadarko Petroleum Corp. and Flint Hills Resources.
Flint Hills recently finalized acquisition of a small-craft pier and wharf next to its existing oil terminal in Ingleside, Tex., which is already receiving Eagle Ford production. Flint Hills expects to begin outbound waterborne shipments of Eagle Ford production from the retrofitted assets by mid-2012.
Harvest began construction on a separate expansion of its Arrowhead system in January, a 25-mile line running from Cotulla, Tex., in LaSalle County, to an interconnect near Fowlerton, Tex. (OGJ Online, Jan. 11, 2011).
