Enterprise Products Partners L.P announced the start of a binding open commitment period to determine additional shipper demand for capacity on the partnership’s Appalachia-to-Texas (ATEX Express) pipeline. The 1,230-mile system will deliver growing ethane production from the Marcellus/Utica Shale areas of Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Ohio to Mont Belvieu, Texas.
“While the long-term commitments we already have are more than sufficient to proceed with the development of ATEX Express pipeline, we continue to receive steady interest from other producers seeking long-term transportation capacity,” said A.J. “Jim” Teague, executive vice president and chief operating officer of Enterprise’s general partner. “We will use this open commitment period to determine market interest in executing additional binding, 15-year transportation agreements.”
The open commitment period began and will close on Thursday, September 27, 2012 at 5 p.m. CDT. For commercial inquiries or additional information related to the open commitment period, please contact Russ Kovin at (713) 381-7925 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
