Philips 66 Partners, Harvest Midstream and PBF Logistics have entered into an agreement to jointly develop the ACE Pipeline System.
The system will provide crude oil transportation service from the market hub in St James, Louisiana, to downstream refining destinations in Belle Chasse, Maraux, and Chalmette, Louisiana.
The pipeline system is expected to have an initial throughput capacity of 400,000 barrels per day, with the ability to expand further depending on shipping interest. The parties may elect to add a delivery destination in Clovelly, Louisiana, subject to market demand.
The system is expected to be placed in service in the second half of 2020.
It will include a new-build segment to connect the St James market centre to the CAM pipeline. Harvest Midstream will contribute its existing CAM pipeline to the ACE pipeline system.
