HOUSTON Jan 31 Enterprise Products Partners LP
is building a new lateral pipeline that will alleviate
bottlenecks on the newly expanded Seaway Pipeline, executives
told analysts on Thursday.
The lateral from Jones Creek. Texas -- Seaway's endpoint --
to the Houston Ship Channel is slated to be completed in the
third or fourth quarter this year, they said.
Last week Enterprise issued a curtailment order to shippers
on Seaway, restricting deliveries at the Jones Creek terminal.
Planned work under way at Phillips 66's 247,000
barrel-per-day (bpd) refinery in Sweeny, Texas, which is
connected to the Jones Creek terminal, has led to crude oil
supplies backing up at the storage and distribution point.
