Phillips 66 Pipeline LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Phillips 66, is extending its open season deadline for the Cross-Channel Connector project to Dec. 12. The extension comes at the request of shippers who want more time to evaluate the project.
The company is soliciting binding commitments to transport refined products from the south side of the Houston Ship Channel to the Magellan Midstream Partners and Kinder Morgan Energy Partners systems on the north side of the HSC at Galena Park and East Houston.
As part of this project, Phillips 66 Pipeline is proposing to reactivate an idle section of 20-in. pipeline under the HSC and expand an existing 20-in. active line in Pasadena, Tex. The Cross-Channel Connector could be fully operational in 2014, subject to timely market commitments and receipt of the necessary permits and regulatory approval, the company said.
