The ACE Pipeline System will transport crude oil from the market hub in St. James Parish, Louisiana, to downstream refining destinations in Belle Chasse, Meraux, and Chalmette, Louisiana. The pipeline will provide safe, reliable transportation of crude oil and help Louisiana and its refineries have access to growing energy resources in the United States. The current route will connect the St. James market center to Harvest Midstream’s existing CAM Pipeline.
New pipelines like the ACE Pipeline ensure that the additional energy found and produced in North America can get from production sites to refineries, manufacturers and, ultimately, consumers in various forms. They provide a vital link between energy resources and refineries, helping increase U.S. energy security. The ACE Pipeline will make additional crude available to refineries in South Louisiana, contribute to the economic vitality of the state and improve the Louisiana refining industry’s global competitiveness.
The project is being developed by three joint venture partners, Phillips 66 Partners, Harvest Midstream and PBF Logistics. Phillips 66 will construct the new-build segment of the pipeline system and Harvest will operate the system when completed.
The pipeline is expected to be in service in the second half of 2020. Please stay tuned for progress updates in the months ahead.
