Enbridge Inc. and Phillips 66 commenced an open season for shipper commitments on their planned Gray Oak pipeline, which would carry crude oil from West Texas to major hubs in Texas.
The Gray Oak pipeline would provide crude oil transportation to Corpus Christi, Freeport and Houston in Texas, connecting to more than 3 million barrels per day of refining capacity and dock facilities for export, according to a Dec. 11 news release. Shippers may choose from origination stations in Reeves, Loving, Winkler and Crane counties.
The pipeline is designed to have an initial throughput capacity of 385,000 bbl/d, which may be expanded based on shipper interest during the open season. The project is scheduled to begin service in the second half of 2019.
