Plains All American Pipeline is expanding the capacity on its Cactus pipeline from McCamey to Gardendale, Texas to approximately 390,000 barrels per day. The expansion will allow Plains All American to move increasing production volumes from the Permian Basin to Corpus Christi, Texas, and other delivery points along the system. The expansion includes manifold and metering enhancements at our origination station which are anticipated to be completed in the third quarter of 2017.
The Cactus pipeline is a 310-mile, 20-in. crude oil pipeline and is capable of transporting crude oil from the Permian Basin to the Plains All American/Enterprise Products Partners Eagle Ford Joint Venture (Eagle Ford JV) Pipeline. The Eagle Ford JV Pipeline has a capacity of 660,000 barrels per day and serves the Three Rivers and Corpus Christi markets directly and can supply the Houston-area market through a connection to the Enterprise South Texas Crude Oil Pipeline. Crude oil delivered on Cactus has access to the Eagle Ford JV barge dock facility in the Corpus Christi area as well as dock capacity at third party facilities in Corpus Christi and Ingleside via connections with the Eagle Ford JV pipeline.
