MEDELLIN, Colombia (ICIS)--Shell Pipeline has extended the Houma to Houston (Ho-Ho) reversal project open season by one week to now close on 27 April at noon, the company said on Tuesday.
Shell announced on 8 March the start of a binding open season period for firm capacity on the Ho-Ho pipeline system reversal project.
The Ho-Ho reversal could enable the distribution of approximately 300,000 bbl/day of crude across the US Gulf region depending upon crudes types shipped, Shell said.
Those crudes include the domestic crude oil production increases in Texas and the mid-continent including the Barnett, Eagle Ford and Bakken shale plays, as well as the growing crude supplies in the Cushing, Oklahoma area.
The project would reverse the existing Ho-Ho service to connect the Houston and Port Arthur, in Texas markets with the Louisiana markets, according to the company.
The reversal is expected to begin service in early 2013.
