Louisianians for Energy Statement on Bayou Bridge Pipeline Going into Service

Yesterday, Energy Transfer and Phillips 66 Partners announced that the second phase of the Bayou Bridge Pipeline is complete and will be ready for service April 1, 2019. The 163-mile, 24-inch pipeline will transport crude oil from Lake Charles to terminalling facilities outside St. James. The project will provide Louisiana’s refiners with safe, reliable access to North American crude oil.

Below is a statement you can attribute to me, Randy Hayden – spokesman for Louisianians for Energy:

Louisianians for Energy commends Energy Transfer and Phillips 66 Partners on completing the Bayou Bridge Pipeline and investing in Louisiana’s future. After creating approximately 2,500 construction jobs and generating millions of dollars in tax revenue, Bayou Bridge will continue to fuel economic growth across our state as it come into service next week. With the U.S. producing record amounts of crude oil, Louisiana will be well-positioned to play a key role in the industry for years to come.”
