Explorer and LDH Energy sign connection agreement at Mont Belvieu

WILTON, Conn. - Louis Dreyfus Highbridge Energy LLC and Explorer Pipeline Co. on Feb. 1 announced plans to make connections from LDH Energy’s Mont Belvieu, Texas, storage facility to Explorer’s 28-inch pipeline system.
The connection, which will be designed to accommodate movements of both refined products and natural gasoline, will be capable of meeting Explorer’s mainline delivery rates of 32,000 barrels per hour. The parties expect the connection to be operational by the fourth quarter 2010.
“With the increase in demand projected for diluents moving into Canada, Explorer is the most logical choice for meeting the transportation needs from the Gulf Coast into the Midwest markets,” said Rod Sands, CEO of Explorer. Sands added, “The connection to the Mont Belvieu trading hub for natural gasoline as well as the connectivity of our system in the upper Midwest will position Explorer for future growth in the transportation of diluents.” , products pipelines
