FACTBOX-U.S. crude oil pipeline projects: TransCanada asks for Keystone XL pause

Tue 3rd November, 2015 8:45pm
(Updates TransCanada Corp, Genesis Energy projects) 
    HOUSTON, Nov 3 (Reuters) - Oil pipelines in the United States are undergoing 
a historic realignment in response to new production in the Eagle Ford 
development in south-central Texas, redevelopment of older production in the 
Permian Basin, and new flows of oil from the Midwest and Canada that have 
oversupplied Midwest markets. 
    TransCanada Corp  TRP.N  has asked the U.S. State Department to suspend its 
review of the company's proposed $8 billion Keystone XL pipeline until the route 
through Nebraska is finalized. That gives the project its best chance of 
approval, Chief Executive Russ Girling told analysts during an earnings call on 
Tuesday. 
    TransCanada first proposed the pipeline in 2008, but it has sparked vehement 
environmental opposition. The State Department said its review will continue 
while the agency considers TransCanada's request. 
    Also on Tuesday, Genesis Energy LP  GEL.N  said the company had struck a 
deal wtih Exxon Mobil Corp  XOM.N  to give the company's 560,500 barrels per day 
refinery in Baytown, Texas, more direct access to medium-sour crude produced in 
the Gulf of Mexico. 
    Chief Executive Grant Sims said the company would use a combination of new, 
existing and repurposed pipeline infrastructure, including Genesis' offshore 
Cameron Highway Oil Pipeline System (CHOPS) and Exxon's Hoover Offshore Oil 
Pipeline System (HOOPS). The new system would start up in mid-2016.  
    Here is an updated list of 91 projects:

southern Saskatchewan near the border with Manitoba. Would move Bakken oil north 
into Canada to connect with TransCanada's proposed $960 million, 1.1 million bpd 
Energy East pipeline, which will move U.S. and Canadian crude to Canada's east 
coast. TransCanada has asked the Obama Administration for a presidential permit 
for the Upland project, which is required for cross-border pipelines. 
    CAPACITY: Up to 220,000 bpd 
    COST: $500 million 
    STARTUP: Target startup 2018, but Energy East has been delayed to 2020 after 
TransCanada scrapped plans to build an export port in Quebec because it would 
endanger beluga whales. TransCanada is considering other port options. 
     
    PROJECT: Potential Capline reversal 
    OPERATOR: Marthon Petroleum Corp  MPC.N  
    ORIGIN/DESTINATION: 632-mile, 40-inch pipeline from St James, Louisiana, to 
Patoka, Illinois.   
    CAPACITY: 1.2 million bpd of light crude; could move up to an estimated 
800,000 bpd of heavy crude 
    COST: N/A 
    STARTUP: Reversal under study by owners Marathon, Plains All American and BP 
Plc  BP.L ;  Marathon says could potentially move Canadian heavy crude and 
Bakken to Louisiana if a source to fill it in Illinois is found; Plains says 
reversal won't happen until after its Diamond Pipeline from Cushing, Oklahoma to 
Memphis, Tennessee starts up in early 2017; Plains said May 6 the Diamond 
startup will reduce Capline flows to less than 300,000 bpd. Line will not be 
reversed unless all three owners agree. Plains also said May 6 that Plains and 
Marathon are "of one mind" in support of reversal, and they've "still got to 
have the positive vote of that third owner," meaning BP, which declines comment. 
 
    PROJECT: Freedom Pipeline 
    OPERATOR: Kinder Morgan 
    ORIGIN/DESTINATION: Wink, Texas in the Permian Basin to Emidio, California.

move crude, 22 miles of new pipeline for interconnections in California, and 200 
miles of new pipeline between Wink and El Paso, Texas; also construction of tank 
facilities in Texas and delivery points in California. 
    Company shelved the project in May 2013, but began talking to potential 
shippers in 2014 to gauge interest; potential resurrected project could include 
construction of a 150,000 bpd atmospheric topping unit in West Texas to produce 
100,000 bpd of stabilized condensate and 200,000 bpd of gasoils and residual 
fuels. The condensate could be exported from Southern California, and the other 
components could be blended into crude for California refineries. 
    CAPACITY: Initially 250,000 bpd, could be expanded expandable to 400,000 bpd 
    COST: $2 billion when proposed without the topping unit in 2012; updated 
cost estimate undisclosed.

refineries. 
    CAPACITY: 250,000 barrels per day initially 
    COST: N/A 
    STARTUP: Was 2016, depending on shipper interest. In June Koch announced a

NuStar's existing refined products pipeline that runs from McKee, Texas to 
Denver. The products line will be reversed and converted to carry crude from 
Denver to McKee, and then connected with NuStar's 14-inch Wichita Falls-to-McKee 
crude line, which also will be reversed to move oil to Wichita Falls from McKee. 
    CAPACITY: 70,000 to 75,000 bpd for Colorado, 125,000 to 130,000 bpd for 
Wichita Falls. 
    COST: n/a
