Installation Approved of Jack, St. Malo Pipeline

Amberjack Pipeline Company LLC, a joint venture between Chevron Pipe Line Company and Shell Pipeline Company LP, today announced approval to install a 136-mile (219 km), 24-inch (61 cm) crude oil pipeline from the Jack and St. Malo fields in the deepwater U.S. Gulf of Mexico to a Shell-owned and operated platform in Green Canyon Block 19 (GC19).

The pipeline will originate approximately 280 miles (450 km) south of New Orleans, Louisiana, in 7,000 feet (2.16 km) of water and terminate at GC19. From GC19, Jack/St. Malo owners will have a variety of pipeline options for moving crude oil to most major trading hubs and refineries in the Gulf Coast region.

This new pipeline will be a significant technical undertaking, and once installed will serve as a safe and reliable oil export solution for the Chevron operated Jack/St. Malo hub production facility. As previously announced by Chevron, the hub facility is expected to have an initial production capacity of 170,000 barrels of oil per day. Startup of the hub facility is anticipated in 2014.

Chevron Pipe Line Company will construct and operate this pipeline for Amberjack Pipeline Company LLC.
