Industry Brief

Growing crude oil production from the Eagle Ford Shale has prompted Koch Pipeline Co. LP to expand its South Texas system by 24 miles in San Patricio County. A new 16-inch diameter pipeline would have initial capacity of 200,000 b/d and is expected to enter service during the second quarter. "...[T]his new pipeline will help us move domestic crude to the U.S. market more efficiently by using a combination of new and existing pipeline infrastructure," said Executive Vice President Bob O'Hair. The company operates about 540 miles of active crude oil transportation lines in Texas.
