KMEP to expand Eagle Ford crude, condensate pipeline

Kinder Morgan Energy Partners LP will expand its Kinder Morgan crude and condensate pipeline system (KMCC) deeper into the Eagle Ford shale play in Karnes County, Tex. The expansion, supported by a long-term contract with ConocoPhillips, will extend the 178-mile pipeline 31 miles from the KMCC DeWitt Station in DeWitt County, Tex., to ConocoPhillips’s central delivery facility near Helena in Karnes County.

KMEP also will build receipt tanks and a truck unloading facility adjacent to ConocoPhillips’s Helena site. KMEP expects to begin construction on the project next month for completion in third-quarter 2014. The company has committed to deliver as much as 300,000 b/d of Eagle Ford crude and condensate.

KMCC entered service in June 2012. Its expansion will cost $107 million.

KMEP last month announced a 70,000-b/d expansion of its crude lateral between KMCC and Phillips 66’s Sweeny refinery in Brazoria County, Tex. (OGJ Online, May 3, 2013). KMEP expects the lateral to enter service by yearend.
