EPP to add 4 million bbl crude storage to ECHO

Enterprise Products Partners LP plans to add 4-million bbl of crude oil storage to its Enterprise Crude Oil Houston (ECHO) and Bertron sites and about 55 miles of 24-in. and 36-in. OD pipeline connecting ECHO to southeast Texas refineries. The expansion will bring ECHO’s total capacity to more than 6 million bbl, with the pipeline also providing access to EPP’s marine terminal at Morgan’s Point on the Houston Ship Channel.

EPP described the plans as designed to facilitate the use of increased US crude production by southeastern Texas refiners. It expects to perform the expansion in phases, to be complete by fourth-quarter 2014.

ECHO Phase 1—750,000 bbl divided between three tanks—entered service late last year (OGJ Online, Nov. 2, 2012). EPP expects to complete ECHO’s 900,000-b/d Phase 2 by first-quarter 2014.

KW Express LLC is building 210,000 b/d crude oil rail and barge terminal on the Houston Ship Channel (OGJ Online, Feb. 22, 2013).
