Double Eagle pipeline begins Eagle Ford condensate shipments

Double Eagle Pipeline LLC, a 50-50 joint venture of Magellan Midstream Partners and Kinder Morgan Energy Partners, has started shipping condensate for Eagle Ford shale producers in Karnes and Live Oak counties, Tex. Double Eagle line-fill ended last week, with the system now transporting condensate via KMEP’s existing 50-mile, 14-in. and 16-in. OD pipeline from Three Rivers, Tex., to Magellan’s Corpus Christi, Tex., terminal.

Double Eagle’s new truck unloading and storage facility near Three Rivers also entered service.

The joint venture expects to complete construction of Double Eagle’s 140-mile, 12-in. OD western leg from Gardendale near Cotulla, Tex., in LaSalle County to Three Rivers early next quarter. Initial capacity of the pipeline is 100,000 b/d, expandable to 150,000 b/d with additional pumps.

Double Eagle was initially proposed by a joint venture consisting of Copano Energy LLC and Magellan (OGJ Online, Feb. 10, 2012). KMEP purchased Copano early this year (OGJ Online, Jan. 13, 2013).
