EPP to move diluent from Mont Belvieu to Chicago

Enterprise Products Partners LP (EPP) will proceed with development of a project to transport diluent-quality natural gasoline from its Mont Belvieu, Tex., liquids storage complex via its 20-in. OD TE Products Pipeline to several potential Chicago-area delivery points. The decision followed an open season during which EPP secured long-term commitments supporting plans to provide access to both Enbridge Inc.’s Southern Lights and Kinder Morgan Energy Partners LP’s Cochin pipelines.

EPP expects connections to Southern Lights and Cochin to begin service during the fourth-quarter 2013 and second-quarter 2014, respectively.

Southern Lights entered service July 2010 and carries diluent 1,588 miles from the Chicago area to Edmonton.

KMEP last year began offering service to move light condensate on Cochin from Kankakee County, Ill., to terminals near Fort Saskatchewan, Alta., receiving more than 100,000 b/d of binding 10-year commitments in an initial open season (OGJ Online, June 6, 2012).
