Bayou Bridge Pipeline begins commercial operations.
Bayou Bridge Pipeline, LLC has started commercial operations on the 30-inch segment of the Bayou Bridge Pipeline from Nederland, TX to Lake Charles, LA. Bayou Bridge is jointly owned by subsidiaries of Phillips 66 Partners LP, Energy Transfer Partners, L.P. and Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P.
The joint venture completed a successful binding expansion open season to assess additional interest in transportation service from Nederland to refining markets east of Lake Charles on the Bayou Bridge Pipeline. Based on shipper commitments, the Louisiana segment of the pipeline from Lake Charles to St. James will be 24 inches in diameter.
At Lake Charles, Bayou Bridge will connect to Phillips 66 Partners' Clifton Ridge terminal and Citgo's Lake Charles refinery. At St. James, Bayou Bridge has agreed to connections to Plains Marketing, L.P.'s and NuStar Energy L.P.'s crude oil terminals. Bayou Bridge is in discussions with additional parties to connect to the extensive existing crude oil terminal infrastructure in the region.
Bayou Bridge is on schedule with respect to the 24-inch segment to St. James, and commercial operations are expected to begin in the second half of 2017.
