Double Eagle Pipeline, a partnership between Kinder Morgan and Magellan Midstream, is expanding to move more crude and condensate to the Houston Ship Channel.
Double Eagle Pipeline has signed an agreement with Anadarko Petroleum to extend its pipeline system and connect with the KMCC Pipeline to move crude to the Houston Ship Channel.
Double Eagle is expected to spend approximately $45 million to add 160,000 bbls of storage and add a pump state at Gardendale, as well as build 10 miles of pipeline connecting the system to the KMCC System in Karnes County.
To service the Double Eagle addition, Kinder Morgan plans to add 240,000 bbls of storage at the KMCC's Helena Station.
Through Kinder Morgan's KMCC Pipeline oil moves to delivery points in the Houston Ship Channel or the Phillips 66 Sweeney Refinery in Brazoria County, TX.
The KMCC pipeline system has capacity of 300,000 b/d and has been in operation since mid-2012.
