Shell Cranks Up Zydeco Open Season
Shell is officially seeking binding commitments for firm capacity on its Zydeco crude oil pipeline, which extends from Houston and Nederland, Texas, to St. James and Clovelly, La.
“Zydeco is a strategic pipeline and among the best in terms of connectivity and delivery points of any pipeline along the Gulf Coast,” Kevin Nichols, executive president US Pipeline and CEO of Shell Midstream Partners, L.P., said in a statement delivered to Rigzone. “It has met, and we expect that it will continue to meet, demand in the critical part of a high-growth market.”
Shell Midstream and Shell Pipeline Co. LP jointly own the 350-mile Zydeco pipeline, which delivers crude from the Eagle Ford, Permian Basin and Bakken to Louisiana refiners. According to the binding open season notice, Zydeco is offering a total of 201,000 barrels per day (bpd) of capacity, including:
- 151,000 bpd from Dec. 26, 2018
- 50,000 bpd from May 8, 2019
Formerly known as the Houston-to-Houma (“Ho-Ho”) pipeline, Zydeco underwent an expansion earlier this decade. Shell stated that the open season runs until September 28.
