10.23.2014 - JBBR Pipeline LLC Announces Binding Open Season for Crude Oil Pipeline Project

JBBR Pipeline LLC (JBBR Pipeline), a wholly owned subsidiary of CenterPoint Properties, today announced the start of an open season to solicit binding long-term volume commitments from customers for interstate common carrier transportation service on up to ninety percent of the capacity of a new 20-inch diameter, approximately 4 mile crude oil pipeline system (the Pipeline). The Pipeline will transport crude oil from a crude-by-rail off-loading terminal facility to be built, owned and operated by Joliet Bulk, Barge & Rail LLC in Joliet, Will County, Illinois to an interconnection with the Mobil Pipe Line Company’s Mokena-to-Joliet crude pipeline. From there, shippers will have direct access to the ExxonMobil Oil Corporation’s Joliet Refinery. The Pipeline is designed to transport up to 210,000 barrels of crude oil per day and is scheduled to be operational by January 31, 2015.

The open season will begin at 8:00 a.m. Central Time on October 23, 2014 and will close at 5:00 p.m. Central Time on November 21, 2014. The binding open season will allow interested parties to make volume commitments and execute long-term transportation agreements with JBBR Pipeline for transportation on the Pipeline. Shippers electing to make long-term volume commitments to JBBR Pipeline will be eligible to receive priority transportation service at a premium transportation rate for their committed volumes.

Additional details, including a Notice of Open Season, are available by contacting Eric Gilbert at 630.586.8157 or eric@jolietbrt.com. You may view the Open Season Notification at www.centerpoint.com.
