Enterprise repairs High Island Offshore System

Houston: Enterprise Products Partners has completed repairs to its High Island Offshore System pipeline in the Gulf of Mexico after the pipeline was severed during Hurricane Ike in September.

Federal regulators have approved Enterprise’s inspection and start-up procedures and authorized Enterprise to resume full service on the pipeline. The 42-inch diameter section of pipe damaged during the storm was located in around 130 feet (39.6 m) of water. Now repaired, the pipeline system has the capacity to transport up to 1.8 Bcf/d of natural gas. The High Island Offshore System consists of a 291-mile (468.3-km) pipeline system that transports natural gas from fields in the Galveston, Garden Banks, West Cameron, High Island and East Breaks areas of the Gulf of Mexico to various third-party pipeline systems. The system also includes eight pipeline junction and service platforms. Enterprise President and CEO Michael A. Creel said, “Customers and investors alike can feel confident that our personnel expedited the repair process and managed the asset following the storm as professionally and efficiently as possible”.
