EPP, Enbridge complete Seaway pipeline loop

Seaway Crude Pipeline Company LLC, a 50-50 joint venture owned by affiliates of Enterprise Products Partners LP and Enbridge Inc., has mechanically completed the 512-mile loop of the Seaway crude oil pipeline system that reaches from Cushing, Okla., to the Jones Creek storage and terminal facility near Freeport, Tex.

The 30-in. pipeline is expected to more than double to 850,000 b/d the capacity of the Seaway system (OGJ Online, Mar. 27, 2012; OGJ, Feb. 3, 2014, p. 93).

The Jones Creek facility is connected to EPP’s ECHO crude oil storage facility in Houston via a 65-mile, 36-in. pipeline. The companies say construction of a 100-mile, 30-in. pipeline from ECHO to Beaumont-Port Arthur, Tex., is expected to be completed in July. Commissioning of the Seaway loop, as well as the pipeline from ECHO to Beaumont-Port Arthur, will continue throughout the third quarter.

Along with the pipeline that transports crude oil from Cushing to the Gulf Coast, the Seaway system consists of a terminal and distribution network originating in Texas City, which serves refineries locally and in the Houston area. The Seaway system also includes dock facilities at Freeport and Texas City.
