Bumet, Texas Bumet Bulletin Wednesday, February 10, 2016 Page 13A News i From Page 1A nounced in April 2015, he said. Expected completion will be the second quarter of 2017. The steel pipeline will be 24 inches in diameter and will be used to transport crude oil and condensate from the Permian Basin supply to mar- kets on the Gulf Coast. "There's still a lot of activ- ity in the Permian Basin. There are over 200 drilling rigs active," Rainey said. "It will interconnect with the Midstream network in Sealy. It connects with the refineries in Houston, Beaumont and Port Arthur. It will provide access to export docks at the Houston ship channel." The pipeline will run through Midland, Glasscock, Sterling, Coke, Runnels, Concho McCulloch, San Saba, Burnet, Bell, Milam, Williamson, Lee, Washington and Austin counties. Rainey said the supply would facilitate continued development of domestic oil reserves. He added that 60 percent of the supply was already spoken for. "The initial capacity would be 300,000 barrels a day," Rainey said. "The pro- ject is supported by contracts executed with shippers." The capacity can be expanded to 450,000 barrels per day depending on demand. "We expect by it's comple- tion in 2017 it will be fully subscribed," Rainey said. Following the finalization of necessary right-of-way agreements, Enterprise Products field representatives will be meeting with county officials and first responders to address safety issues closer to the date of ground-breaking on the construction project. "We talked to the judge and commissioners in each of the counties along the route before discussing the project with landowners," Rainey said. Burnet County Judge James Oakley said he had not yet been contacted about eeting, i but~,..&ad!i:~~a notice about the construction project in the mail. Burnet Police Chief Paul Nelson and Bumet EMS Coordinator Lealand Raiford were not aware of the project, but plan to take part in future safety briefings with Enterprise representatives. Up-to-date technology provides more monitoring options for Enterprise work- ers, Rainey said. "We have a comprehen- sive monitoring program. Our pipeline conditions are moni- tored 24/7 from a remote loca- tion," he said, including data reflective of pressure and tem- perature. "It there are possible problems, we can shut down the pipeline remotely." Rainey said rig inspections would be done from an aerial view, from the ground and within the pipe using a tool called a "smart pig" contain- ing sensors that detect dam- ages within the pipe. "We have a group that pro- vides updated information to residents living in close prox- imity to the pipeline, such as what to do if a problem arises, what to look for, et cetera," Rainey said. "Pipeline safety is still a team effort. We rely on the support of the local community." The company also has 'Before You Dig' programs in place for contractors that do digging and excavation work, as well as residents who want to put in a swimming pool or dig a fence, and aren't sure whether they can dig in a cer- tain location. "We encourage them to call our 811 number," he said.
