Enterprise Products Partners L.P. has announced that its affiliate, Enterprise TE Products Pipeline Co. LLC, is conducting an open season to gauge shipper support for incremental volumes of ultra-low sulfur diesel and motor gasoline on the company’s existing 14 in. dia. pipeline that originates in Seymour, Indiana and terminates in the Chicago, Illinois, US, area. To accommodate the additional throughput, Enterprise would increase the capacity on a portion of the 14 in. dia. pipeline in order to receive incremental product in the Indianapolis, Indiana area and deliver such product to the Griffith, Indiana area in Lake County.
Pending sufficient shipper commitments during the open season, expanded service would be expected to begin in December 2018. The open season is being held in response to increased shipper demand for refined products deliveries into the Chicago area market.
The binding open season commitment period will begin on 9 July and continue until 10 August.
Enterprise TE Products Pipeline LLC owns and operates a network of pipeline systems spanning more than 4800 miles, including the 3317 mile TE Products system that transports refined products and natural gas liquids from the upper Texas Gulf Coast to multiple destinations across the Central and Midwestern US. The TE Products system features segments extending to Chicago; Lima, Ohio; Selkirk, New York; and a location near Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The portion of the TE Products system east of Seymour is primarily dedicated to propane transportation.
