Project Details

  • Owner: Jupiter Energy
  • Proposed capacity: 1,000,000 barrels per day[3]
  • Length: 650 miles / 1046.1 kilometers
  • Status: Shelved[1]

The Jupiter Pipeline is a proposed 650 mile, 36” crude oil pipeline from Crane to Brownsville, Texas, with connections in the Three Rivers area to existing Corpus and Houston destination pipelines. At the Brownsville terminus, the Jupiter Pipeline would connect to Jupiter's proposed Brownsville Oil Terminal, which is planned to consist of up to 10 million barrels of storage, three docks in the Port of Brownsville and an offshore VLCC loading facility.[5]

Project Delayed

According to S&P Global, the Jupiter Pipeline is "on hold indefinitely". The project is one of several Permian oil and gas pipelines facing delays or possible cancellation due to COVID-19 related decreases in global demand and North American production.[1]
