Kinder Morgan Crude and Condensate Pipeline
Kinder Morgan Crude & Condensate pipeline (KMCC) originates in the Eagle Ford Shale and delivers crude/condensate to multiple terminals with access to refineries, petrochemical plants and docks on the Texas Gulf Coast. KMCC currently has origin points in Karnes, DeWitt and Gonzales counties in the Eagle Ford shale and will have access to western Eagle Ford production via an interconnect with the Double Eagle pipeline that is estimated to be in service in the first quarter of 2015. The 250-mile KMCC pipeline, which went into service in June 2012, is supported by long-term contractual commitments and has a capacity of 300,000 barrels per day (bpd). Kinder Morgan is now accepting nominations to move product from the Eagle Ford shale to the Texas Gulf Coast.
In addition to its connectivity to third-party terminals, KMCC will tie into Kinder Morgan's planned petroleum condensate processing facility near the company's Galena Park terminal on the Houston Ship Channel. The approximately $360 million facility that will have throughput capacity of 100,000 bpd, is supported by a fee-based contract with a major oil customer. The first 50,000 bpd of capacity is expected to be in service in the fourth quarter of 2014, and the full 100,000 bpd of capacity will be in service during the second quarter of 2015.
