Enterprise brings Rancho II crude oil pipeline into service

Enterprise Products Partners LP (EPP), Houston, reported its 88-mile, 36-in. Rancho II crude oil pipeline is now online and able to transport supplies between Sealy, Tex., and the company’s Enterprise Crude Houston (Echo) storage terminal in southeast Houston (OGJ Online, Nov. 2, 2012).

The line, which will transport various grades of crude, condensate, and processed condensate, will link existing Eagle Ford assets and the recently announced 400-mile Midland-to-Sealy pipeline—expected in service by second-quarter 2017—with the larger Gulf Coast crude oil network (OGJ Online, May 1, 2015).

The Midland-Sealy line, with capacity of 540,000 b/d, will connect the company’s Midland terminal with storage at Sealy. It will receive oil by truck and pipeline and deliver it to Sealy in as many as four segregated batches. It will carry West Texas Sour, West Texas Intermediate, and Light West Texas Intermediate crude as well as condensate.
