Construction on 1046-km Natural Gas Liquids Pipeline Begins in Texas

EPIC Y Grade Pipeline, a 1046 km natural gas liquids (NGL) carrier, linking NGL reserves in the Permian and Eagle Ford Basins in New Mexico and West Texas to Gulf Coast refiners, has commenced construction running alongside the EPIC crude oil pipeline.

Driving the project is an agreement between EPIC Midstream Holdings and BP Energy to transport at least 220,000 barrels per day with multiple origin points in the Delaware and Midland Basins.

“We are delighted to collaborate with BP, which brings to this project global commercial expertise for both NGLs and purity products,” said Phil Mezey, EPIC’s Chief Executive Officer. “We look forward to providing a straight-forward, independent solution to shippers’ NGL marketing and transportation needs.”

For its part, Orlando Alvarez, BP's President and CEO, said "we are excited to extend producer services into the prolific Delaware and Midland basins, while at the same time serving the growing needs of the petrochemical and refining sectors along the U.S. Gulf Coast."

The dual EPIC pipelines are being considered two of the most significant infrastructure projects in Texas. Work is expected to be completed in 2018.


Look.....this is west Texas in the United States of AMERICA. We use feet, inches, yards, and MILES to measure distance....... just so there's no confusion. They can KEEP their metric system in Europe. ol' Lawrence in west Texas Retired from the oilfield after 48 years
