Background

The pipeline was completed in 2005 to provide gathering services for the Constitution and Ticonderoga fields in the south Green Canyon area of the Gulf of Mexico.[4][3] It consists of (1) a 32-mile, 16-inch natural gas pipeline with a capacity of 200 million cubic feet per day, connecting the two fields to Enterprise's existing Anaconda Gathering System, which gathers natural gas production from the Marco Polo area; and, (2) a 70-mile, 16-inch crude oil export pipeline with a capacity of 100,000 barrels per day, connecting the two fields with the Cameron Highway Oil Pipeline and Poseidon Oil Pipeline systems at Cameron Highway's Ship Shoal 332B junction platform.[4]

In April 2006, pipeline owner Enterprise Products Partners received initial flows of crude oil and natural gas into its Constitution oil and gas pipelines from the Constitution and Ticonderoga fields.[4]
