Shell Pipeline Company LP announced today the Odyssey Pipeline System successfully transported the first crude oil produced from the LLOG Exploration Company, L.L.C (LLOG) operated Delta House Platform located in the Mississippi Canyon protraction area of the Gulf of Mexico. The safety, operational excellence and delivery of the Odyssey system are what led to this deep water strategic partnership.

"We selected the Odyssey pipeline system to deliver crude from the Delta House because of its reliability and offshore safety record," said Rick Fowler, Vice President of Deep Water Projects for LLOG. "Connecting Delta House to this system will help us optimize our resource value and continue our excellent relationship with Shell Pipeline in other areas in the Gulf of Mexico."

"The Odyssey pipeline is an ideal option for companies like LLOG because it creates opportunities for our customers to increase connectivity and access in high demand areas," said Kevin Nichols, Shell General Manager of Pipeline Business Development. "We are excited to continue our strategic partnership with LLOG Exploration in the Gulf of Mexico."

The Delta House platform, operated by LLOG, is a deep-water floating production system with subsea infrastructure that currently taps into three Mississippi Canyon fields. The host platform has the potential to tap into additional LLOG fields in the future.

The Odyssey pipeline system is a joint venture between Shell and Genesis Energy, L.P. The asset is operated by Shell and is comprised of a 120-mile network of crude oil pipelines, varying in diameter from 12 to 20 inches. The pipeline has the capacity to deliver up to 220,000 bpd, from developments in the eastern Gulf of Mexico, to other pipelines and terminals.

Odyssey provides deep-water developments with crude oil access and optionality to the Empire and Houma markets. The Empire and Houma connection is with the Delta pipeline, which is owned and operated by Shell.
