Commissioning of the Seaway Loop (Twin), as well as the new pipeline from ECHO to Beaumont/Port Arthur, will continue throughout the third quarter 2014.

In addition to the pipeline that transports crude oil from Cushing to the Gulf Coast, the Seaway system comprises a terminal and distribution network originating in Texas City, Texas, which serves refineries locally and in the Houston area. The Seaway system also includes dock facilities at Freeport and Texas City.

The Seaway Pipeline system is owned by Seaway Crude Pipeline Company LLC, a 50/50 joint venture owned by affiliates of Enterprise Products Partners L.P. and Enbridge Inc. For additional information, please visit www.seawaypipeline.com.
