Kinder Morgan (KMP) and Phillips 66 have reached an Eagle Ford crude delivery deal. KMP will build a 12-inch, 27 mile lateral from its Eagle Ford Crude Condensate pipeline to Phillips 66’s Sweeney Refinery in Brazoria County.
Phillips is committing to take a “significant portion” of the pipeline’s initial 30,000 b/d of capacity. The pipeline will have the potential to be expanded to 100,000 b/d if needed.
KMP will invest approximately $90 million in the project, which also involves adding associated receipt facilities by constructing a five-bay truck offloading facility and three new storage tanks with approximately 360,000 barrels of crude/condensate capacity at Kinder Morgan’s DeWitt Station in DeWitt County, Texas, and Wharton Pump Station in Wharton County, Texas. Pending receipt of environmental and regulatory approvals, construction is scheduled to begin in the fourth quarter of 2012.
Kinder Morgan’s Eagle Ford Crude Condensate pipeline was brought online in June of 2012.
