Kinder Morgan Crude and Condensate Pipeline
Kinder Morgan crude/condensate pipeline (KMCC) is comprised of 65 miles of new-build construction and 113 miles of converted natural gas pipeline, originates in the Eagle Ford Shale and delivers crude/condensate to multiple terminaling facilities that provide access to local refineries, petrochemical plants and docks on the Texas Gulf Coast. The approximately $215 million pipeline, which went into service June 2012, is supported by long-term contractual commitments and has a capacity of 300,000 bpd. Kinder Morgan is now accepting nominations to move product from Eagle Ford Shale to Texas Gulf Coast.
In addition to its connectivity to third-party terminaling facilities, KMCC will tie into Kinder Morgan's planned petroleum condensate processing facility to be located near the company's Galena Park terminal on the Houston Ship Channel. This approximately $200 million facility will have an initial throughput capacity of 50,000 bpd, is being supported by a fee-based contract with a major oil customer and can be expanded up to 100,000 bpd. The project is in the final design phase and is expected to be in service by the first quarter of 2014.
