Howard Midstream to build US-Mexico refined products pipeline

Howard Midstream Energy Partners LLC (HEP) subsidiary Dos Aguilas Pipeline LLC will build the 287-mile, 12-in. OD Dos Aguilas products pipeline project following a successful open season. Dos Aguilas is an open access system of refined products terminals and pipelines from Corpus Christi, Tex., to northern Mexico. Pending all government approvals, Howard expects the project to service first-half 2018.

Dos Aguilas will ship gasoline, ultra-low sulfur diesel, and jet fuel from the Corpus Christi refinery complex to Laredo, Tex., and on to northern Mexico markets through deliveries to Nuevo Laredo, Tamaulipas, and Monterrey, Nuevo Leon. The project is broken down for regulatory purposes into four pipelines, with different names:

• Border Express Pipeline, Corpus Christi to Laredo (141 miles).

• Borrego Pipeline, Laredo to the US-Mexico border (10 miles).

• Poliducto Frontera Pipeline, US-Mexico border to Nuevo Laredo (12 miles).

• Poliducto del Norte Pipeline, Nuevo Laredo to Monterrey (124 miles).

Howard will build terminals, with a combined 1.2 million bbl of storage, at the pipeline’s start in Robstown, Tex., Laredo, Nuevo Laredo, and at the pipeline’s end in Santa Catarina, Mexico, near Monterrey.
