HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jupiter Energy Group (“Jupiter”), a privately held midstream company that provides crude oil producers and gas plants with logistics and offtake solutions, today announced a 90-day extension of the Open Season that commenced on November 30, 2018 for binding shipper commitments on the Jupiter Pipeline, which is expected to be operational in the fourth quarter of 2020. The Open Season will now conclude on May 31, 2019.
