06 August 2018

Tallgrass Energy, LP is developing a new crude oil pipeline from Cushing, Oklahoma to the St. James, Louisiana refining complex, as well as a separate new export-capable liquids terminal strategically located near the mouth of the Mississippi River.

The proposed Seahorse Pipeline is expected to be 30 inches in diameter and approximately 700 miles long, with the capacity to transport up to 800,000 barrels of crude oil per day from Cushing to the Louisiana Gulf Coast. The proposed new terminal, Plaquemines Liquids Terminal is expected to be fully operational during the second quarter of 2020 and is permitted for up to 20 million barrels of storage.
