Skip to comments.Shell moves closer to Westward Ho pipeline project

Shell Pipeline Co. said today it received customer support for a new pipeline that would move crude oil from St. James, La. to the refining hubs around Beaumont and Port Arthur, Texas.
The Westward Ho should allow refineries to access the growing supply of domestic and foreign crude oil coming through St. James, the company said. The new pipeline would also complement new storage and logistics infrastructure that are currently being built in the St. James and Clovelly, La. areas.
The new pipeline would allow for the distribution of about 600,000 bbls per day of crude across the region depending upon crude types shipped, and it could begin service by early 2015.
Shell, which announced the pipeline option in September, said it plans to seek binding commitments from shippers for the project in early 2012
So some ho can have a pipeline but Keystone can’t?
That’s whack fo’ shizzle.
Whereinell is Clovelly, LA?? Being from (VERY) small town Louisiana myself, I thought I knew all the “tiny towns” around south central Louisiana....but I never heard of Clovelly (and neither, apparently, has Google....at least it doesn’t show up on a map search).
...And yet, when wit and youth is come to harvest,
Your were is alike to reap a proper man:
There lies your way, due west.
Then westward-ho! Grace and good disposition
Attend your ladyship! —Shakespeare, ¨Twelfth Night¨
