Enterprise to link Eagle Ford crude to Houston-area refining complex

HOUSTON, Texas - Enterprise Products Partners L.P. on Nov. 11 announced plans to construct a crude oil storage facility and associated pipelines to provide refiners in the Houston area with access to growing production from the Eagle Ford Shale play in South Texas.

A 150-acre tract in an industrial area of southeast Houston has been purchased as the site for the new Enterprise Crude Houston terminal.
Crude oil will be delivered to the Enterprise Crude Houston facility through the partnership’s Rancho Pipeline, located approximately three miles northwest of the new terminal, and two 24-inch pipelines Enterprise plans to construct.

Strategically located close to two large-diameter crude oil distribution pipelines, the Enterprise Crude Houston terminal would provide access to the major refiners in Texas City, as well as other installations in Pasadena/Deer Park, Baytown and along the Houston Ship Channel via the Seaway Pipeline.
