NuStar Energy has completed three major capital projects to expand the capacity to transport and export Permian crude oil, and move refined products into Northern Mexico.The US-based liquids terminal and pipeline operator completed the second stage of its export project, a 12.8km, 30inch pipeline that will transport crude oil from Taft to NuStar’s Corpus Christi terminal.Earlier, NuStar Energy had also finished work to connect an existing 16inch pipeline in South Texas to the Plains Cactus II pipeline that transports WTI volumes from the Permian Basin to South Texas.NuStar president and CEO Brad Barron said: “We are very excited about the continued growth of our South Texas Crude System, which is once again experiencing throughput at near the historically high levels we saw in the Eagle Ford’s heyday in 2015, and the increased utilization of our Corpus Christi export terminal, which is now handling the leading edge of the impending wave of Permian long-haul crude oil.”“And we expect continued growth for both Permian and Eagle Ford barrels going forward.”The company’s storage expansion is expected to be completed by December 2019.NuStar Energy completes expansion projects along its Valley Pipeline and Laredo PipelineNuStar Energy announced that it completed expansion projects along its Valley Pipeline and Laredo Pipeline. Both expansion projects were done as part of an agreement with San Antonio refining company Valero Energy to move gasoline, diesel and other refined products south of the border.NuStar Energy announced that the Valley Pipeline expansion project allows diesel and other fuels from two Valero refineries in Corpus Christi to be moved to storage tanks, where the fuels can be transported into Mexico.The expansion along the Laredo Pipeline includes a horizontal drilling project under the Rio Grande River allowing NuStar Energy to move diesel from VLO’s Three Rivers refinery to a storage terminal on the Mexican side of the border.The expansion projects are completed at the same time as a project to link the NuStar Energy export terminal at the Port of Corpus Christi to the Plains-owned Cactus II Pipeline, which will move crude oil from the Permian Basin to the Gulf Coast.Brad Barron said: “It’s an amazing coincidence that all three of these projects, each of which has been years in the making, all began moving volumes within 24 hours of each other.”last_img read more

Over 800 OnTheMarket agents have returned to ZPG, says Goddard

first_imgZPG has today claimed that 808 branches have returned to its portals over the past two years from rival OnTheMarket.com since Agents Mutual launched it in 2015.And ZPG senior figure Mark Goddard (pictured, left), who heads up its Property Services division, has gone on the attack, saying that agents who spend their marketing budgets on OnTheMarket are doing so “inefficiently”.Recent returnees include 16 agency branches which ZPG says have moved over during the past week, helping increase its returning total by 58 since it last reported on its attempt to persuade agents back from OnTheMarket. This was within its 24th May half-year results.“We do not comment on individual agent relationships but the facts remain the same as they did last week when Zoopla gave a similar update,” says Ian Springett, Chief Executive of Agents’ Mutual (pictured, right).“OnTheMarket.com continues to have a positive material impact on the property portals landscape.”“Many thousands of agents switched from Zoopla/Primelocation to join us. Many thousands of agents continue to support the objectives of the business by creating a genuine alternative portal for consumers and agents alike. Many thousands of agents have not returned to ZPG portals with their advertising budgets and their data.”ZPG says it now has 14,271 branches and 928,000 properties listed on its websites, up 9% year-on-year.Somerset agentOne of the more recent agents to move over is three-branch Somerset agent Jeanes Holland Burnell. One of its directors, Ian Odam, says the company joined OnTheMarket in January.“After two years of supporting the OTM project, we felt unable to sustain our membership with them any longer as we believed we were missing out by not listing our stock with ZPG,” he says.“In December 2016, we re-listed with ZPG and such has been the response that our offices received as many leads in the first few weeks as we received in the previous 6 months with Onthemarket and is on par with the number we receive from Rightmove.”Ian Springett told The Negotiator that OnTheMarket is making “impressive headway in a very challenging market, achieving millions of monthly visits with a record-breaking month of 11.2m earlier this year – an 85% year-on-year increase”, he said.  Ian Springett Mark Goddard OnTheMarket Zoopla ZPG June 1, 2017Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
