Koch Pipeline Company Evaluating Restart of Pipeline Supporting Eaglebine Shale

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Koch Pipeline Company, L.P. (KPL) announced it is evaluating the restart of an existing crude oil pipeline system located in multiple Eaglebine Shale counties. The potential restart includes pipeline, storage and truck unloading stations in north central Burleson and eastern Lee counties in Texas.

In 2015, KPL restarted a 56-mile section of this system, which included storage and a truck unloading facility in south central Bastrop County, Texas.

“As a company we are always exploring ways to provide value for our customers,” said Steve Kromer, president of Koch Pipeline Company. “We are excited about the opportunity to possibly restart this pipeline to provide enhanced transportation alternatives to Eaglebine producers.”

Pending results of its evaluation, KPL intends to restart the system in 2016.
