Midstream operator Easton Energy LLC has agreed to buy a petrochemical pipeline system that runs from Houston to Corpus Christi from ExxonMobil Corp, moving to capitalise on South Texas’ growing petrochemical market.
The acquisition is anticipated to close early next year. The companies did not disclose a price on the deal.
The South Texas Pipeline System has 720 miles of pipeline and runs from ExxonMobil’s Clear Lake and Katy Gas Plants to Energy Transfer LP’s King Ranch Gas Plant and the Port of Corpus Christi.
The line has historically been used to transport everything from oil to natural gas liquids, but most recently shipped refinery grade propylene.
The system will also connect to Easton Energy’s 50 million barrel salt dome storage facility in Markham, Texas, which is located between the petrochemical markets in Houston and Corpus Christi.
