Jupiter Energy extended an open season until May 31 for the 650-mile, 36-inch Jupiter pipeline stretching from the Permian to the Port of Brownsville.
“We're very pleased with the results of the initial open season period for the Jupiter Pipeline,” said Albert Johnson, president of Jupiter Pipeline. “The supplemental period validates our belief that the interest for transportation commitments on the pipeline is as substantial as expected.”
The pipeline will be originating near Crane, Texas, and Gardendale/Three Rivers, Texas and is the only pipeline out of the Permian Basin with access to all three deep water ports in Texas (Houston, Corpus Christi and Brownsville). It is expected to be operational in fourth quarter of 2020.
It will have direct access to a fully capable VLCC loading facility off coast at Brownsville, where the Jupiter Brownsville Terminal will consist of up to 10 million barrels of storage, three docks and an offshore VLCC loading facility.
