Project details

  • Operator: Energy Transfer LP[1]
  • Owner: Energy Transfer LP[1]
  • Parent: Energy Transfer LP
  • Capacity: 275,000 barrels per day[1]
  • Length: 350 miles[1]
  • Diameter: 20 inches[1]
  • Cost: US$3 billion[2]
  • Status: Construction[1]
  • Start year: 2022[1][3]

Background

According to June 2020 data from the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA), the pipeline carries propane, butane, and natural gasoline. Permitting issues need to be resolved before the full capacity (275,000 barrels per day) is available, rather than the current 125,000 barrels per day.[1]

Construction began in 2017.[4]

As of November 2020, construction was expected to be complete by the end of the year.[5] However, more than two years later, the project was not complete in early 2022.[3]

As of April 2022, it is complete, and the full capacity of 275,000 barrels per day was now permissible.
