Anadarko Petroleum Corp. has signed a long-term agreement with Kinder Morgan Crude & Condensate LLC and Double Eagle Pipeline LLC, a 50/50-joint venture of Magellan Midstream Partners LP and Kinder Morgan Energy Partners LP, to transport Anadarko’s Eagle Ford shale production from Gardendale, Tex., in LaSalle County, to the Houston Ship Channel via the KMCC Pipeline. Double Eagle will build 160,000 bbl of storage and a pump station at Gardendale and a roughly 10-mile pipeline to connect the Double Eagle Pipeline and the KMCC Pipeline in Karnes County, Tex.
Double Eagle will transport production from its new Gardendale station to the KMCC Helena station in Karnes County. KMCC will build 240,000 bbl of storage at its Helena Station to move crude and condensate from the Double Eagle Pipeline to KMCC delivery points. Double Eagle and KMCC expect to complete construction in early 2015.
The Double Eagle Pipeline includes 140 miles of 12-in. OD pipeline connecting to a 50-mile, 14- and 16-in. pipeline segment owned by KMEP extending from Three Rivers, Tex., to Magellan’s marine and storage terminal in Corpus Christi, Tex. The initial capacity of the pipeline is 100,000 b/d, but can be expanded with additional pumps. Double Eagle began condensate shipments on the 50-mile segment earlier this year (OGJ Online, May 14, 2013).
