Chevron runs an extensive network of crude oil, natural gas and refined product pipelines and storage facilities in North America. We also operate and invest in pipeline projects around the world.
Chevron Pipe Line Company, a subsidiary of Chevron, serves the petroleum and petrochemical industries in North America from headquarters in Bellaire, Texas. The company transports crude oil, refined petroleum products, liquefied petroleum gas, natural gas and chemicals within the United States. In 2012, Chevron operated more than 10,370 net miles (16,690 km) of U.S. pipeline. The network carries approximately 1.70 million barrels of liquids and 1.67 billion cubic feet of natural gas per day.
We also manage and operate approximately 95 billion cubic feet of storage in facilities in West Texas, southern Louisiana and Canada. Chevron's natural gas facilities connect to major pipeline systems that serve consumer and industrial markets in the United States and Canada. We continue to improve the network.
In the U.S. Gulf of Mexico, Chevron is leading the construction of a 136-mile (219-km), 24-inch (61-cm) crude oil pipeline from the planned Jack/St. Malo deepwater production facility to a platform in Green Canyon Block 19 on the Gulf of Mexico shelf. From there, a variety of pipeline options will be available to deliver crude oil to most major trading hubs and refineries in the Gulf Coast region. The project is expected to be completed by 2014.
In early 2013, Chevron entered into an agreement to sell the owned and operated Northwest Products System. This system consisted of a 760-mile (1,223-km) refined products pipeline extending from Salt Lake City, Utah, to Spokane, Washington; a dedicated jet fuel pipeline serving the Salt Lake City International Airport; and three refined products terminals in Idaho and Washington. Chevron also is in the process of relinquishing its interest in the Trans Alaska Pipeline System.
Chevron has pipeline interests around the world that are operated by our international partners.
