CORPUS CHRISTI, SOUTH TEXAS - Plains All American Pipeline (PAA) and Enterprise Products Partners have agreed to expand their Eagle Ford joint venture crude oil pipeline.

The expansion will set the pipeline’s capacity to 470,000 barrels per day of light and medium crude oil grades to accommodate additional volumes expected from PAA’s Cactus pipeline which is currently under construction. The Cactus Pipeline is being constructed by PAA from McCamey, Texas, in the Permian Basin area to Gardendale in La Salle County.

The Eagle Ford expansion is expected to cost approximately $120 million and is expected to be in service in second quarter 2015.

It serves the Three Rivers and Corpus Christi refineries and other markets via marine transport facilities at Corpus Christi.

The pipeline supplies the Houston-area market through a connection to the Enterprise Crude Pipeline terminal at Lyssy in Wilson County, Texas.

The expansion also includes constructing an additional 2.3 million barrels of operational storage capacity in Gardendale, Tilden and Corpus Christi.
