EPIC Y-Grade pipelines placed in service

November 9, 2021 By    

EPIC Y-Grade completed its 165-mile pipeline from the EPIC Robstown, Texas, fractionation complex to the Sweeny, Texas, fractionation and storage complex, which includes Phillips 66 and Chevron Phillips Chemical.

EPIC has connectivity to both the Corpus Christi and Sweeny markets. EPIC can transport and fractionate NGL volumes in both locations as well as access its storage position in Sweeny for both Y-grade and purity products. The company also has placed in service a 175-mile propane pipeline for delivery and sale of product in Sweeny.

EPIC has continued to expand its long-term relationship with the downstream market through a recently completed ethane pipeline connecting to Gulf Coast Growth Ventures, an ExxonMobil and SABIC joint venture. This facility will include a 1.8 million metric ton ethane steam cracker. The company says it is positioned with multiple strategic purity connections, including exports around its Corpus Christi fractionation complex.

EPIC Y-Grade was formed in 2017 to build and operate a 700-mile, 24-in. NGL pipeline and associated fractionation complex linking NGL reserves in the Permian and Eagle Ford to Gulf Coast refiners, petrochemical companies and export markets. The company’s operated fractionation complex is located at the terminus of the 24-in. pipeline in Robstown. It has owned and controlled fractionation capacity totaling 240,000 barrels per day in Robstown and Sweeny.
