Shell extends open season for Houma-to-Houston reversal project to April 27
HOUSTON, Texas - Shell Pipeline announced on March 8 the start of a binding open season period for firm capacity on the Houma-to-Houston pipeline system reversal project (Ho-Ho Reversal).
To accommodate requests by shippers for final management approval for commitments, Shell Pipeline has extended the Ho-Ho Reversal Project Open Season by one week. The open season will now close on April 27 at noon CDT.
Shell Pipeline's Ho-Ho Reversal project will provide pipeline access to additional crudes across the 300 miles of the U.S. Gulf of Mexico refining complex. Those crudes include the domestic crude oil production increases in Texas and the mid-continent including the Barnett, Eagle Ford, and Bakken shale plays, as well as the growing crude supplies in the Cushing, Okla., area.
Additionally, the Ho-Ho Reversal project would complement the new pipeline infrastructure that is currently being built to the Houston area.
Shell Pipeline's project would reverse the existing Ho-Ho service to connect the Houston and Port Arthur, Texas, markets with the Louisiana markets. The Ho-Ho Reversal could enable the distribution of approximately 300,000 bbls. per day (b/d) of crude across the region depending upon crude types shipped.
