HOUSTON (ICIS)--Two major US natural gas liquids (NGL) pipelines have gone into service, the pipelines’ owners announced on Monday.

The 720-mile (1,152-km) Sand Hills pipeline transports NGLs from the Permian Basin in west Texas and southeast New Mexico and Eagle Ford Shale in south Texas to markets along the Gulf Coast. It has a capacity of up to 200,000 bbl/day, ramping up to 350,000 bbl/day as additional pump stations are installed.

The 800-mile Southern Hills pipeline transports NGLs from production in the midcontinent to Gulf Coast markets. It has a capacity of up to 175,000 bbl/day.

Both pipelines began taking flows in the fourth quarter of 2012 and first quarter of 2013, respectively.

DCP Midstream, Phillips 66 and Spectra Energy each own a one-third interest in the pipelines.
