Enterprise Products' Eagle Ford Crude Oil System Starts

Enterprise Product Partner's Eagle Ford crude oil system began accepting deliveries on June 7, 2012. The 147 mile, 24-inch pipeline from Wilson County, TX, to Sealy, TX, has capacity to move 350,000 barrels per day of crude. In Sealy, the pipeline and storage facility links into the company's Rancho Pipeline, which ties directly into the Gulf Coast Refinery Complex and the Enterprise Crude Houston (ECHO) oil terminal. The ECHO terminal is being expanded to store six million barrels of crude and will provide direct access to ~4 mmbbls/d of refining capacity.
