More Midstreamers Offer Storage Relief
Following news that Houston-based Energy Transfer has identified two of its Permian pipelines to store up to 2 MMBbls of crude oil, Alberta-based Enbridge also has joined in with a temporary solution to its own supply glut. Enbridge has reached a deal with shippers on the company’s Mainline system to house 900,000 Bbls of tar sands oil for an eight-month term on its Line 3 pipeline, which is scheduled for decommissioning in 2021. The 1,433-mile Mainline is Canada’s longest crude line with nearly 3 MMBPD of capacity transporting oil to U.S. refineries. Houston-based Select Energy Services, a water storage and infrastructure provider servicing the Permian, says it now offers producers mobile storage tanks that have been modified to hold crude.
LNG Projects Get Kicking
Houston-based Freeport LNG this week announced commercial service on its third train, which brings the terminal’s total processing capacity to 15 mtpa of LNG. The Freeport facility, the nation’s second largest of its kind, will process more than 2% of the total annual U.S. production of natural gas.
Cheniere, the nation’s largest LNG exporter, also has begun commercial service on the company’s 200-mile Midship pipeline, which stretches from the Anadarko Basin to interconnects that flow natural gas o the Gulf Coast and Cheniere’s two LNG export terminals. Cheniere is the world’s second-largest LNG operator.
Houston-based Sempra Energy has reported the third train at its Cameron LNG export terminal in Hackberry, La., is on the home stretch to begin commercial operations this Fall. To date, the facility has shipped 58 cargoes. Upon completion of train 3, the facility is projected to process 1.7 BCFPD and export 12 mtpa of LNG.
