HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Enterprise Products Partners L.P. (NYSE: EPD) announced today that its affiliate, Enterprise TE Products Pipeline Company LLC, is conducting an open season to gauge shipper support for incremental volumes of ultra-low sulfur diesel and motor gasoline on the company’s existing 14-inch diameter pipeline that originates in Seymour, Indiana and terminates in the Chicago, Illinois area. To accommodate the additional throughput, Enterprise would increase the capacity on a portion of the 14-inch diameter pipeline in order to receive incremental product in the Indianapolis, Indiana area and deliver such product to the Griffith, Indiana area in Lake County.
Pending sufficient shipper commitments during the open season, expanded service would be expected to begin in December 2018. The open season is being held in response to increased shipper demand for refined products deliveries into the Chicago area market.
The Binding Open Season Commitment Period will begin July 9, 2018 at noon CDT and continue until 5 p.m. CDT on August 10, 2018. Requests for additional information may be directed to James Taylor at (713) 381-5105 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
