Shell's Seajack Pipeline Begins Service

On October 22, 2006 Shell Pipeline Company LP put into service the Seajack Pipeline, a 9.5 mile 20-inch diameter pipeline that connects the end of the Caesar Oil Pipeline to the Amberjack Pipeline System in the Gulf of Mexico.

"This connection provides additional market flexibility for Caesar shippers and also provides improved flow assurance for Caesar-connected production," said Mark Hurley, President of Shell Pipeline Company LP. "It will be a great addition to our extensive pipeline network in the Gulf of Mexico."

Seajack has a capacity of 180,000 barrels per day. Costs of the construction project were not disclosed.

Headquartered in Houston, Texas, Shell Pipeline Company LP has been in the pipeline transportation business for over 80 years and currently operates in several states, transporting over two billion barrels of crude oil and refined products annually. Shell Pipeline Company LP is a wholly owned subsidiary of Shell Oil Products US, a unit of Shell Oil Company.
