Genesis Energy plans Louisiana pipeline, crude rail terminal

Genesis Energy LP plans to build an 18-mile, 20-in. OD crude oil pipeline connecting its existing Port Hudson, La., terminal to ExxonMobil Corp.’s 500,000-b/d Baton Rouge refinery via the Maryland terminal and Anchorage tank farm. The 350,000-b/d pipeline will also access other local refineries with capacity totaling 140,000 b/d.

The company also plans to build a crude oil unit train terminal at the Baton Rouge Maryland site. At Port Hudson, Genesis will build 200,000 bbl of storage, complementing its 216,000 bbl of existing capacity, and improve its barge dock and truck station.

Genesis plans to begin construction early this year, with Port Hudson upgrades and the crude oil pipeline expected to be completed by yearend and the Maryland unit train terminal to enter service second-quarter 2014. Genesis will spend about $125 million on the projects.

The company is a 50-50 partner with Enterprise Products Partners LP in the Southeast Keathley Canyon Pipeline Co. LLC, expected to transport 115,000 b/d of crude oil from the deepwater offshore Gulf of Mexico Lucius development by mid-2014 (OGJ Online, Jan. 4, 2012).
