Jupiter Energy Group has extended the open season for binding shipper commitments on the Jupiter Pipeline.
Open season originally commenced on 30 November 2018 and was intended to run for 90 days; however, an additional 90 days has been added to the period which will now conclude on 31 May 2019.
Jupiter Pipeline President Albert Johnson said there was significant interest in the project.
“We’re very pleased with the results of the initial open season period for the Jupiter Pipeline,” he said.
“The supplemental period validates our belief that the interest for transportation commitments on the pipeline is as substantial as expected.”
A 1,046 km pipeline with a diameter of 36 inch (914 mm), the Jupiter Pipeline will transport crude oil through Texas, US, from Crane to Brownsville, with connections in the Three Rivers area to existing Corpus and Houston destination pipelines.
At the Brownsville terminus, the pipeline will connect to the Jupiter Brownsville Terminal, which will have 10 million barrels of storage capacity, three docks in the Port of Brownsville and an offshore very large crude carrier loading facility.
The pipeline is expected to be operational in 2020.
