Double Eagle Pipeline LLC, a 50/50 joint venture between Magellan Midstream Partners, L.P. and Kinder Morgan Energy Partners, L.P.,today announced that the entire pipeline system, comprised of 195 miles of pipe, is now in full operation to Corpus Christi, Texas as designed. The 84-mile western leg of the Double Eagle pipeline system is connected into four central gathering facilities and is moving condensate from Gardendale near Cotulla, Texas, in LaSalle County through Three Riverstruck unloading and storage facility in Live Oak County to Magellan’s Corpus Christi Terminal. The 37-mile eastern leg of the Double Eagle pipeline system is moving condensate from Karnes County, Texas, also through Three Rivers, and down to Magellan’s Corpus Christi Terminal.

In May 2013, the company began transporting condensate from Three Rivers to Magellan’s Corpus Christi terminal. Double Eagle’s new truck unloading and storage facility near Three Rivers started service in mid-April 2013.

“We’re pleased to be working with Magellan to expand our Double Eagle pipeline system to meet the increasing needs of producers moving condensate out of the Eagle Ford shale,” said Don Lindley, president of Natural Gas Liquids for KMP. “With continued interest from our customers, we expect to see more expansion opportunities in the near future.”

“The Double Eagle partnership provides increasingly important services for producers as production continues to increase and new market opportunities develop,” said Robb Barnes, Vice President of Crude Oil & Marine Terminalsfor Magellann.

The Double Eagle Pipeline system, operated by Kinder Morgan, includes 140 miles of new 12-inch pipeline. The Double Eagle system connects to an existing 55-mile, 14- and 16-inch pipeline segment owned by Kinder Morgan extending from Three Rivers to Magellan’s marine and storage terminal in Corpus Christi. The initial capacity of the pipeline is 100,000 barrels per day (bpd), but can be expanded to 150,000 bpd with additional pumps.
