Enterprise Products Partners L.P. (NYSE:EPD) today announced it will be conducting a binding open commitment period to gauge shipper support for a proposed expansion of the Aegis pipeline. The 270-mile Aegis system is designed to transport purity ethane from Enterprise’s Mont Belvieu, Texas liquids storage complex to petrochemical facilities in Texas and Louisiana.

The initial 60-mile segment from Mont Belvieu to Beaumont, Texas began service in September of 2014, followed by the 48-mile portion from Beaumont to Lake Charles, Louisiana in September of 2015. The remainder of the Aegis pipeline, which will extend to the Mississippi River corridor area, is on schedule for completion by the end of 2015.

The incremental capacity being offered reflects the continued strong interest in the Aegis pipeline and marks the second supplemental open season to expand the system. The expanded capabilities of the Aegis system, which are being achieved by the addition of pumps and related infrastructure, is expected to come online in stages through 2019, depending on the level of customer commitments.
