Plains All American, Enterprise Products To Expand Texas

Plains All American Pipeline and Enterprise Products Partners announced plans to construct a new condensate gathering system into their Three Rivers terminal, and double mainline capacity on the Eagle Ford Joint Venture (JV) Pipeline from Three Rivers to Corpus Christi, TX, in the third quarter of 2015.

The gathering system will have approximately 55 miles of gathering and trunkline pipeline that will connect Karnes County and Live Oak County production areas to the Three Rivers terminal. Plains and Enterprise also plan to construct an additional 70 mile, 20-inch pipeline from Three Rivers to Corpus Christi as well as expand storage and pumping capacity at Three Rivers. This project, in addition to previously announced expansions, will effectively loop the Eagle Ford JV Pipeline from Gardendale to Corpus Christi and increase the JV system capacity to over 600,000 BOPD.

The Eagle Ford JV Pipeline system is a 50/50 joint venture between Plains and Enterprise that delivers crude oil and condensate to the Houston-area market through a connection to the Enterprise Crude Pipeline terminal in Wilson County, Texas. This is the second expansion of the JV pipeline which was announced in September of 2013.

In addition to increasing mainline capacity, Plains and Enterprise will also be building a new terminal on the Corpus Christi ship channel to support the increased volumes to be shipped via pipeline in the region. The dock will have the capacity to handle a variety of ocean-going vessels and is planned to be in service by 2017.
