Southcross Energy Partners, L.P. (SXE) (“Southcross”) today announced the completion of a 60,000 bbls/d Y-grade pipeline connecting Southcross’ Woodsboro processing facility to Southcross Holdings LP’s (“Holdings”) 63,000 bbls/d Robstown Fractionator (“Robstown”) near Corpus Christi, Texas and a 20,000 bbls/d propane pipeline from Southcross’ Bonnie View Fractionator to the Corpus Christi area for delivery to end-use customers (collectively, the “NGL Pipelines”). The NGL Pipelines were part of the drop-down transaction announced in May 2015 with construction expected to be complete in July 2015. In addition, the first of the two fractionation trains at Robstown is operating at approximately 32,000 bbls/d of Y-grade. The second fractionation train at Robstown is currently in the commissioning phase and remains on target to be operational by August 2015.
“We are pleased to report that the NGL Pipelines have been completed ahead of schedule and under budget,” said John Bonn, president and chief executive officer of Southcross’ general partner. “The NGL Pipelines, together with the continued progress toward the completion of the Robstown fractionation complex, are a critical component of our fully integrated processing and fractionation complex in the South Texas area. Our integrated system is an important part of the Southcross Advantage and provides us with competitive and economic advantages through increased operating efficiency, flexibility and system reliability.”
