Enterprise begins service on Rancho II pipeline

Enterprise Products Partners LP (NYSE: EPD) has begun service on its Rancho II pipeline between Sealy, Texas, and the partnership’s ECHO terminal in southeast Houston.

The 88-mile, 36-in.-diameter pipeline will transport various grades of crude oil, condensate, and processed condensate from the Permian Basin and the Eagle Ford shale play.

“The Rancho II pipeline is an integral part of Enterprise’s larger efforts to expand its crude oil and condensate network in Texas,” said Michael A. Creel, CEO of Enterprise’s general partner. “Combined with our existing Eagle Ford assets and recently announced Midland-to-Sealy pipeline, Rancho II enhances our ability to provide crude oil and condensate from key producing areas with direct access to every refinery in Houston, Texas City, Beaumont and Port Arthur, as well as Enterprise’s marine facilities through our ECHO distribution system.”
