Jupiter Energy Group has launched its 90-day open season for binding shipper commitments on the Jupiter Pipeline, the privately held midstream company reported Friday.

“Construction of the Jupiter Pipeline is a key element in achieving our vision of providing our customers with the best hydrocarbon solutions from the wellhead to the world,” Albert Johnson, president of Jupiter Pipeline LLC, said in a written statement.

According to the company, the 650-mile-long Jupiter Pipeline will be the only pipeline out of the Permian Basin that will access all three of Texas’ deepwater ports – Houston, Corpus Christi and Brownsville. The 36-inch-diamater crude oil pipeline will originate near Crane, Texas, and Gardendale-Three Rivers, Texas, and it will have an offtake point in Brownsville, Texas, Jupiter stated. Also, the company noted that the pipeline will have direct access to a fully capable very large crude carrier (VLCC) off-coast loading facility at Brownsville.

The pipeline, which could begin service in the fourth quarter of 2020, could boast a capacity of up to 1 million barrels per day of crude oil, Jupiter states in its open season notice.

As a previous Rigzone article about the project notes, the pipeline will directly link to Kinder Morgan’s Double Eagle and Crude & Condensate pipeline systems. In addition, Jupiter has received permits to load and unload up to Panamax-sized vessels at the crude upgrading, processing and export terminal it is building in Brownsville.
