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.
