Download the Equistar Pipelines Fact Sheet
The 42-acre facility uses caverns in underground salt domes to store various feedstocks and refined projects and distributes them via pipeline to other company facilities and several customers in the region.
There are 13 wells at the site that together provide approximately 12 million barrels of storage capacity. The pipeline system and the Mont Belvieu storage site are operated 24 hours a day from the pipeline operations control center in LyondellBasell's Clear Lake Facility in Houston, Texas. The control center has the capability to start and stop pumps and compressors along the pipeline and to remotely open and close valves and isolate sections of pipeline or divert flows to other lines as needed.
Our control center also has advanced communications equipment to maintain constant communications with the public and emergency responders in the event of an emergency.
Our commitment to sustainable growth balances our responsibility to provide economic value for our stakeholders, while respecting the social concerns of the community in which we operate, and demonstrating care for the environment.
