Koch Pipeline to expand South Texas crude system

WICHITA, Kansas -- Koch Pipeline Company, L.P. will expand its South Texas crude oil pipeline system with the installation of an additional 24 mi pipeline in San Patricio County.  The new pipeline will have an expected initial capacity of approximately 200,000 bpd.

“We are seeing additional opportunities with the Eagle Ford shale play and this new pipeline will help us move domestic crude to the U.S. market more efficiently by using a combination of new and existing pipeline infrastructure,” said Bob O’Hair, E.V.P. of Koch Pipeline. “South Texas is an important area for Koch Pipeline and we’ll continue to invest in it to ensure we have a system that meets the shippers’ needs in terms of capacity and reliability.”

Koch Pipeline currently operates about 540 mi of active crude oil transportation lines in Texas.  The new 16-in. pipeline is expected to begin service in the second quarter of 2014.
