Overview of Assets

Asset Map


Onshore Pipeline Transportation

  • Bengal: a joint venture between Colonial Pipeline Company and Shell Midstream Partners connects four refineries in the St. Charles, Norco, Garyville and Convent areas of Louisiana with refined products storage tankage in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Connects with the Plantation and Colonial Pipelines to provide major market outlets to the Southeast and East Coast
  • Colonial: the largest refined products pipeline in the United States, transporting more than 40 different refined products, consisting primarily of gasoline, diesel fuel and jet fuel. Transports approximately 50% of the refined petroleum products consumed in the East Coast
  • Delta: an approximately 130-mile onshore pipeline aggregating volumes from five offshore pipelines including Shell Midstream Partners' Odyssey Pipeline and the Na Kika Pipeline. This acquisition connects offshore oil production in the eastern corridor of the Gulf of Mexico to key onshore markets.
  • Explorer: a refined products pipeline serving more than 70 major cities in 16 states. Explorer transports gasoline, diesel, fuel oil, and jet fuel from the US Gulf Coast to Midwest.
  • LOCAP: a 55-mile common carrier crude pipeline from the LOOP Clovelly Salt Dome facility to the active trading hub of St. James, Louisiana.
  • Refinery Gas Pipelines: A network of approximately 100 miles of gas pipeline connecting multiple refineries and plants operated along the Gulf Coast to Shell Chemical sites, including Shell's Norco refinery and Deer Park refinery.
  • Zydeco: provides a critical outlet to alleviate current transportation bottlenecks of crude oil arriving in Houston, TX from the Eagle Ford shale, Permian Basin and Bakken shale. Connects to several crude oil pipelines in Houston and Port Neches/Nederland Spans over 350 miles and has a mainline capacity of 375 kpbd

Offshore Pipeline Transportation

  • Auger: a 174-mile offshore corridor pipeline that transports crude from the Central Gulf of Mexico. Total capacity on the pipeline is 200 kbpd to St. James via the Ship Shoal system and an additional 35 kbpd into the Houma terminal via Eugene Island.
  • Amberjack: The pipeline currently transports roughly 300,000 barrels per day due to the success of Jack St. Malo and Tahiti and has a total capacity of 500,000 barrels per day. The pipeline has exceptional connectivity in the Gulf of Mexico with delivery options along the Texas and Louisiana Gulf Coast.
  • Cleopatra: a 115-mile gas gathering pipeline in Southern Green Canyon, with access to Atwater Valley, Walker Ridge, and Lund areas in the Gulf of Mexico. Cleopatra is currently connected to the Holstein, Atlantis, Neptune, Shenzi and Mad Dog platforms. The system will transport new volumes from the Mad Dog 2 field once it comes online.
  • Endymion: an 89-mile crude oil pipeline with a 425 kbpd capacity. The pipeline provides access to the Mississippi Canyon area of the Gulf of Mexico. It is connected to LOOP Clovelly storage with access to multiple markets.
  • Mars: a 163-mile pipeline originating approximately 130 miles offshore transporting production from the Mississippi Canyon area to salt dome caverns in Clovelly, LA.
  • Mattox: a 90-mile crude oil pipeline with a 300 kbpd capacity. The pipeline serves the Shell-operated Appomattox platform and transports oil into the Proteus and Endymion systems, which ultimately connect to onshore markets via the Clovelly, LA storage hub.
  • Na Kika: An approximately 80-mile offshore pipeline anchored by the Na Kika platform which serves as a host to eight different subsea fields and connects to the Delta Pipeline at Main Pass 69.
  • Odyssey: a key corridor pipeline in the Eastern Gulf of Mexico with 220 kbpd of capacity. Odyssey is connected to the Delta Pipeline with deliveries into Houma, Empire Terminal, Norco, and Alliance Refineries. Odyssey is a private pipeline which affords it commercial flexibility, facilitating the attraction and retention of crude volume.
  • Poseidon: a 367-mile Gulf of Mexico offshore crude oil pipeline with 350 kbpd capacity transporting to key markets in Texas and Louisiana. A key corridor pipeline, Poseidon connects to approximately 50 Gulf of Mexico fields and delivers to three locations.
  • Proteus: a 71-mile crude oil pipeline with a 425 kbpd capacity. The pipeline provides access to the Mississippi Canyon area of the Gulf of Mexico from the Thunder Horse and Thunder Hawk platform to the Proteus SP 89E Platform. Noble Energy’s Big Bend and Dantzler fields are tied back to the Thunder Hawk platform.

Terminals & Storage

  • Products Terminals: includes the Anacortes, Colex, Des Plaines, Portland, and Seattle products terminals. The terminals are strategically located with take-or-pay contracts with wholly owned subsidiaries of Shell. Each contract has an initial term of 10 years with options to extend up to 20 years. The acquisition of the products terminals builds upon Shell Midstream Partners' strategy to access assets across Shell's broad asset base.
  • Lockport: located southwest of Chicago and is strategic to this market place for storage of Canadian and Bakken crude. Lockport has 16 tanks and a total storage capacity of two million barrels. The terminal has the capability to feed into 11 Midwest refineries while also providing strategic trading opportunities.
  • Norco Logistics Assets: consist of certain midstream assets at the Shell Norco Manufacturing Complex and are comprised of crude, chemicals, intermediate and finished product pipelines, storage tanks, docks, truck and rail racks and supporting infrastructure.

Gathering & Processing

  • Permian Gas Gathering: a network of 194 miles of low pressure gathering lines and 36 miles of high pressure trunklines serving 100,000 dedicated acreage area in Loving and Ward counties.
