Koch to expand Eagle Ford crude line

Koch Pipeline Co. LP, an indirect, wholly owned subsidiary of Koch Industries Inc., plans to install a 24-mile, 200,000-b/d pipeline in San Patricio County, Tex., effectively expanding the company’s South Texas crude oil pipeline system.

Koch operates 540 miles of crude oil transportation lines in Texas. The 16-in. line is expected to begin service in the second quarter.

“We are seeing additional opportunities with the Eagle Ford shale play and this new pipeline will help us move domestic crude to the US market more efficiently by using a combination of new and existing pipeline infrastructure,” said Bob O’Hair, Koch Pipeline executive vice-president.
