Enterprise Products Partners LP has started a supplemental binding open commitment period to determine shipper demand for additional incremental capacity on the Aegis pipeline between Mont Belvieu, Texas and the Napoleonville, Louisiana, area. The 270mi Aegis pipeline system is designed to transport ethane from Enterprise’s Mont Belvieu liquids storage complex to petrochemical facilities in Texas and Louisiana.
The initial 60mi segment from Mont Belvieu to Beaumont, Texas, began service in September 2014. The remainder of the Aegis pipeline will be completed in two phases scheduled for completion by yearend 2015.
The incremental capacity will be achieved through the installation of additional pumps and is expected to be available in 1Q 2018.
The supplemental binding open commitment period ends 11 May, 2015, and is being held to accommodate those with an interest in executing long-term transportation agreements to the Napoleonville area along the Mississippi River corridor.
