Louisiana’s infrastructure requires routine investment to ensure that our energy resources safely and efficiently reach end destinations.
Fortunately for our state, private companies continue to meet that need. As the Times-Picayune recently noted, Phillips 66 has announced plans for a 94-mile crude oil pipeline from the St. James oil market hub to its Alliance Refinery in Plaquemines Parish.
“The pipeline would provide Louisiana refineries with new access to U.S.-produced crude oil, reducing reliance on foreign crude and keeping them competitive in the global market for energy projects,” according to a company fact sheet.
The St. James hub is a critical link for oil and gas operations in the Gulf Coast, providing the transportation and refining capacity to help meet energy needs throughout the region – and creating good-paying jobs for hardworking Louisianians along the way.
Louisianians for Energy looks forward to further developments from Phillips 66 and continuing investment in our state’s infrastructure.
