Enterprise Products Partners has executed long-term agreements in support ofa new 416-mile, 24-inch pipeline to transport crude oil and condensate from the company’s Midland, TX terminal to its Sealy storage facility west of Houston.

From Sealy, the new pipeline would link to Enterprise’s ECHO terminal through an interconnect with the Rancho II pipeline, which is scheduled to be in service in July. Through ECHO, customers will have direct access to every refinery in Houston, Texas City, Beaumont and Port Arthur, as well as Enterprise’s dock facilities.

Process principles governing the exploration, midstream and downstream operations in the oil and gas arena are by no means new. As with any process that has evolved through years of experiential knowledge, engineering took a backseat to first-hand experience. This is no longer the case in today’s midstream facilities. While the overall purpose of the industry has not changed, the process has been fine-tuned to suit shale type, more stringent product specifications and modified regulatory policies.

The Department of the Interior’s Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) held the Central Gulf oil and gas lease sale 235 on March 18 which drew $538,780,056 in high bids for tracts on the U.S. Outer Continental Shelf offshore Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama.

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — New Yorkers have an extra two weeks to comment on the proposed 124-mile Constitution Pipeline after the severe winter delayed the state's field review of potential effects to wetlands and streams along the project's planned route through four counties.

The Department of Environmental Conservation's yearlong review of the pipeline's water quality certificate application was supposed to be completed by May 8, but the agency asked Constitution to resubmit its application to extend the deadline, pipeline spokesman Christopher Stockton said Wednesday.

As the worldwide demand for energy drives new investments in oil & gas exploration, production, and transportation, an increased need for visibility into flow measurement across the enterprise comes with it. The market not only requires accurate flow metering for upstream, midstream, and downstream applications, but also needs to be able to access this information across the enterprise.

BEIJING (AP) — The general manager of China's largest oil refiner, Sinopec, has been placed under criminal investigation amid an ongoing crackdown on corruption.

A one-sentence notice from the ruling Communist Party's anti-corruption watchdog body on Monday said Wang Tianpu was suspected of serious violations of laws and discipline. The phrase usually refers to corruption and abuse of power.

Wang had already been issued a major administrative demerit over a November 2013 pipeline explosion that killed 62 people in the eastern port city of Qingdao.
