The Double Eagle pipeline is a 50/50 joint venture between Kinder Morgan and Magellan Midstream Partners that transports Eagle Ford shale condensate to Corpus Christi, Texas. The pipeline has a capacity of 100,000 barrels per day, with the potential to be expanded to 150,000 barrels per day if additional pumps and equipment are added. It consists of a new 12-inch-diameter, 140-mile-long pipeline connecting to an existing 14 and 16-inch-diameter, 50-mile segment of pipeline owned by Kinder Morgan.
The pipeline was temporarily shut down in August 2017 in preparation for Hurricane Harvey.
In December 2013, Kinder Morgan and Magellan Midstream Partners L.P. announced a long-term agreement with Anadarko Petroleum Corp. to transport shale production in the Eagle Ford play in LaSalle County via the Double Eagle Pipeline to the Houston Ship Channel. Part of the agreement included Double Eagle installing 160,000 barrels of storage capacity and a pump station at Gardendale and a 10-mile pipeline connecting Double Eagle pipeline to the Kinder Morgan Crude and Condensate pipeline.
