HOUSTON (ICIS)--Enterprise Products and partner Enbridge have completed the expansion of the 500-mile Seaway crude oil pipeline from Cushing, Oklahoma, to the US Gulf coast and resumed service on Friday, they said.

Service on Seaway had been suspended on 2 January so that pump station connections could be completed, allowing capacity to be increased from 150,000 bbl/day to 400,000 bbl/day.

In addition to the pipeline that transports crude oil from Cushing to the Gulf Coast, the Seaway system includes a terminal and distribution network originating in Texas City, Texas, which serves refineries locally and in the Houston area, and it includes dock facilities at Freeport and Texas City.

Seaway is an equal joint venture between Houston-based Enterprise Products and Canada’s energy infrastructure major Enbridge.
