In 2014, the pipeline construction was completed by Southeast Keathley Canyon Pipeline Company, L.L.C. (“SEKCO”), which was a 50/50 joint-venture between Energy and Genesis. The 18-inch diameter pipeline stretches 149 miles and connects the Lucius-truss spar floating production platform to an existing platform at South Marsh Island 205, which is part of the Enterprise-operated Poseidon Pipeline system.[5] The Lucius production zone is estimated to contain around 300 million barrels of crude oil reserves and is operated by a production group lead by Anadarko Petroleum Corporation.[6]

In 2015, Genesis Energy purchased $1.5 billion worth of Enterprise Products' assets in the Gulf such as oil and gas pipelines along with interests in various oil platforms.[7] As part of this deal, Genesis purchased Enterprise's SEKCO oil pipeline system.[8]
