Background

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.[2] 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.[2] 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.[3]

The pipeline was temporarily shut down in August 2017 in preparation for Hurricane Harvey.[4]

Expansion

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.[3] 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.
