EPIC Midstream’s vision to create a NGLs “super system” has officially been realized after only four years. Reese Energy Consulting today is following the latest news from Houston-based EPIC, which in 2017 set off to build an integrated pipeline and fractionation network that would offer a smaller but best-in-class alternative to a crowded Mt. Belvieu. The company kick-started its ambitious plans with construction of the 700-mile Y-Grade Pipeline to flow Permian and Eagle Ford NGLs to Gulf Coast refiners, petrochem companies, and export markets. But more work lay ahead. EPIC last year completed its first greenfield fractionator at its Corpus Christi site that connected the Y-Grade Pipeline with an initial 110 MBbls of fractionation capacity. Now, the final legs of this super system are done and open for business. EPIC has announced completion of a 165-mile NGLs pipeline that extends from the company’s Corpus Christi facility to the Sweeny, Texas, fractionation and storage complex, adding another 130 MBbls of owned capacity. EPIC also has put into service a 175-mile propane pipeline for deliveries to Sweeny. Congratulations to all on the latest EPIC achievement.
