Victoria Express Pipeline LLC has opened a binding open season for long-term commitments of transportation of crude oil and condensate through a pipeline under construction in the Eagle Ford shale play of South Texas.
The 56.4-mile, 12-in. Victoria Express Pipeline, expected to be in service July 1, will have ultimate capacity to carry 100,000 b/d from the Blackhawk central delivery point in DeWitt County to the inlet of a Devon Gas Services LP terminal at the Port of Victoria. The port allows access to shallow-water barge-loading facilities.
Victoria Express Pipeline, a subsidiary of Devon Energy Corp., also is building a receipt point, the Highway 77 transfer station, 8 miles north of Victoria in Victoria County and might add a destination point at Point Comfort in Calhoun County.
The company started a nonbinding open season for expressions of interest in long-term commitments on the new pipeline to Point Comfort.
Both open seasons opened May 27 and will end at 5 p.m. CDT on June 19.
