PAA to expand Cactus Pipeline takeaway capacity

Plains All American Pipeline LP

Plains All American Pipeline LP (NYSE: PAA) plans to provide additional pumps to increase the takeaway capacity of the Cactus Pipeline in response to higher regional production forecasts and shipper demand.

Installation of booster stations along the pipeline, which runs from McCamey to Gardendale (La Salle County), Texas, will result in an increase in throughput from 250,000 barrels per day (bpd) to 330,000 bpd.

This expansion, in conjunction with the Eagle Ford Joint Venture Pipeline expansion, will allow PAA to move increased production volumes from the Permian Basin to Corpus Christi, Texas, and other delivery points along the system. The Cactus Pipeline is expected to be in service in April 2015; the expansion will be completed in the fourth quarter of 2015.
