Enterprise And Enbridge To Develop Crude Oil Pipeline From Cushing To The Gulf Coast

Enterprise Products Partners L.P. (NYSE: EPD) (“Enterprise”) and Enbridge Inc. (NYSE/TSX:ENB) (“Enbridge”) today announced plans to design, construct and operate a new pipeline to transport crude oil from the oversupplied hub at Cushing, Oklahoma to the Texas Gulf Coast refining complex. Initially, the Wrangler Pipeline will have the capacity to transport up to 800,000 barrels per day (BPD) of crude oil and accommodate the constrained medium-to-light crude oil currently stranded at Cushing and priced at a substantial discount to the oil imports that account for most of the supply being used by Gulf Coast refiners. The pipeline will also have the capability to handle additional supplies of crude oil arriving at Cushing from other North American producers. In anticipation of future increases in crude oil volumes delivered to the Cushing area, the joint venture partners will design the pipeline to be easily expanded.

The proposed 36-inch diameter pipeline will originate at the existing Enbridge Cushing Terminal and extend approximately 500 miles (800 kilometers) southward, closely following existing pipeline corridors, to Enterprise's ECHO crude oil storage terminal in southeast Harris County, Texas, providing access to refineries in Texas City, Pasadena/Deer Park, Baytown and along the Houston Ship Channel. New storage tankage necessary for pipeline operations will be located at the ECHO site and included in the joint venture. The project will also include a new 85-mile (137-km) pipeline to the Beaumont/Port Arthur refining center.

“We are extremely pleased to partner with Enbridge on this important project and believe that our complementary skills and shared strategic vision will help ensure success, and offer the most efficient and expedient solution for meeting the industry’s need for additional crude oil pipeline infrastructure,” said Michael A. Creel, president and chief executive officer of Enterprise’s general partner. “This pipeline will be able to transport all grades of crude oil in batched configuration to meet the diverse needs of shippers, allowing producers to maximize the value of their crude oil and provide a more reliable source of domestic supply for Gulf Coast refiners.”
