President Donald Trump on Thursday announced his plans for promoting US energy, which included the approval of NuStar Energy LP’s New Burgos Pipeline.
President Donald Trump signed two presidential pipeline permits for San Antonio-based NuStar Energy.
The first permit clears the way for NuStar to expand the types of products transported by the Dos Laredos Pipeline — a 10 mile, 8 in. pipeline from Webb County into Mexico. The pipeline, which already carries 32 000 bpd of liquified petroleum gas, will now be able to transport diesel fuel and other refined products into Mexico./p>
The second permit allows the construction of a second pipeline next to its existing 64 000 bpd Burgos Pipeline. The new pipeline would be 34 miles long, 10 in. wide and have a capacity of 108 000 bpd and will cross approximately 30 ft below the Rio Grande River’s bottom, according to filings with the Department of State./p>
It would deliver petroleum products including liquid petroleum gas, natural gas liquids and refined products to the Burgos Gas Plant near Reynosa that is operated by Mexico’s state-owned oil and gas company PEMEX./p>
“My administration has just approved the construction of a new petroleum pipeline to Mexico, which will further boost American energy exports”, Trump said during an ‘Energy Week’ event in Washington. /p>
“Every piece of infrastructure helps,” said Robert Campbell, head of oil-products research for Energy Aspects Ltd in New York. “This only goes just across the river into Mexico.” NuStar spokesman Chris Cho said the company’s CEO Brad Barron attended the Thursday ceremony along with other industry leaders./p>
