Pipelines Continue

TransCanada Corp. still plans to build its Cushing MarketLink crude oil pipeline between Cushing, Okla., and the Texas Gulf Coast, despite plans to reverse the Seaway pipeline to deliver crude along a similar route. Enbridge (US) Inc. and Enterprise Products Partners LP, meanwhile, are evaluating plans for the 800,000 b/d newbuild Wrangler pipeline in the wake of the reversal decision.

Enbridge bought ConocoPhillips’s share of Seaway earlier this week, joining with EPP in its ownership and jointly announcing that its flow would be reversed to deliver crude from Cushing to the Gulf Coast (OGJ Online, Nov. 16, 2011). Initial capacity of the reversed pipeline will be 150,000 b/d, but will reach 400,000 b/d by early 2013, according to EPP. (Oil and Gas Journal)

After my first job at a newspaper -- delivering papers for the Jackson (TN) Sun, ink was in my veins. Since the 1970's I've worked in every area of the Printing and Publishing industry, with most of that time spent in the pressroom. In 2008 I moved to Montana and purchased the Sun Times of Fairfield (fairfieldsuntimes.com). In 2011 I realized that most media outlets were either ignoring, or attacking, the growing oil and gas industry in Montana, so I started the Montana Oil Report as the source of information on this important industry.
