Two Energy Transfer pipeline projects finished

Permian Basin bottleneck: Natural gas pipeline to be converted to carry crude  oil


A pipeline carrying crude oil from the Cushing oil hub in Oklahoma to south Texas is one of two crude oil pipeline projects completed nationwide as of early June according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration.

The Energy Transfer Cushing South Phase II is a 55,000 barrel a day expansion of the Cushing South Project. The Cushing South project includes three existing Energy Transfer pipelines and a reversal and interconnection with the Centurion pipeline that transports crude oil from terminals in Platteville, Colorado, and Cushing, Oklahoma, to Energy Transfer’s terminal in Nederland, Texas. Phase I was completed in the second quarter of 2021.

The second pipeline is another Energy Transfer project. Called the Ted Collins Pipeline, it is a 275,000 barrel a day line that transports crude oil along the Gulf Coast from the Nederland terminal to the Houston Ship Channel, which are both in Texas.
