Oil gathering pipeline connected to Lucius spar
Enterprise Products Partners L.P. and Genesis Energy, L.P. have announced that their jointly owned crude oil gathering pipeline serving the Lucius production area in southern Keathley Canyon in the Gulf of Mexico is now mechanically complete and began earning revenues July 1, 2014.
Constructed and owned by Southeast Keathley Canyon Pipeline Company, L.L.C. (“SEKCO”), a 50/50 joint venture between Enterprise and Genesis, the 149-mile, 18-inch diameter pipeline connects the third party-owned Lucius-truss spar floating production platform to an existing junction platform at South Marsh Island 205, which is part of the Enterprise-operated Poseidon pipeline system.
Enterprise serves as operator of the SEKCO pipeline, which has a capacity of 115,000 barrels per day.
A producer group, led by operator Anadarko Petroleum Corporation, is developing the Lucius production area, which is estimated to have resources of more than 300 million barrels of oil equivalent. First production is expected during the second half of 2014.
