FREEPORT - The 512-mile Seaway Pipeline system loop (twin) pipeline from Cushing, Okla., to the Jones Creek storage and terminal facility near Freeport is mechanically complete.

The new 30-inch Seaway Loop (Twin) Pipeline is expected to more than double the capacity of the Seaway system to 850,000 BPD.

The Jones Creek facility is connected to Enterprise's ECHO crude oil storage facility in Houston by a 65-mile, 36-inch pipeline. Construction of a 100-mile, 30-inch pipeline from ECHO to Beaumont-Port Arthur is expected to be completed July 2014.

Commissioning of the Seaway Loop (Twin), as well as the new pipeline from ECHO to Beaumont-Port Arthur, will continue throughout third quarter 2014.

In addition to the pipeline that transports crude oil from Cushing to the Gulf Coast, the Seaway system comprises 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.

The Seaway Pipeline system is owned by Seaway Crude Pipeline Company LLC, a 50/50 joint venture owned by affiliates of Enterprise Products Partners LP and Enbridge Inc.
