Phillips 66 Proposes New Louisiana Pipeline

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.
