A unit of Enterprise Products Partners LP has awarded Willbros Group Inc. the contract for a planned 15.5-mile, 24-inch diameter ethane pipeline from Enterprise's storage facility near Mont Belvieu, TX, to the company's Morgan's Point facility on Galveston Bay in Harris County, TX. The pipeline will be constructed in one segment and will have multiple drilled crossings, including the Houston Ship Channel. The project begins this month and is planned to be complete in November. The terminal at Enterprise's Morgan's Point facility is to have the capability to load fully refrigerated ethane at about 10,000 bbl/hour (see Daily GPI, Aug. 4, 2014).
Cheniere Energy's Corpus Christi Liquefaction LLC and Cheniere Corpus Christi Pipeline LP have filed at the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission for prefiling review of a proposed expansion of their liquefaction and export terminal in Corpus Christi, TX. The terminal is under construction, and the Stage 3 Project would add two liquefaction trains and a fourth liquefied natural gas storage tank (see Daily GPI, May 12). A pipeline to serve the facilities would be 22 miles long and 42 inches in diameter. It would run parallel to a 48-inch diameter pipeline previously approved by the Commission, according to the filing [PF15-26].
