Port Neches Link Project


Port Neches Link Wordmark

The Port Neches Link Project (Project) will connect TC Energy’s Keystone Pipeline System at its TC Energy Keystone Nederland Delivery Station to allow for the delivery of crude oil to facilities at the Motiva Terminal in Port Neches, Texas.

The Project involves the construction of a 36-inch, 3.5-mile common carrier crude oil pipeline.

The common carrier pipeline system will also include facilities to tie in additional liquids terminals in the Port Arthur area to Motiva’s refinery and other downstream infrastructure, including the P66 Beaumont Terminal.

TC Energy and Motiva Enterprises LLC (Motiva) have partnered through a joint venture (Port Neches Link LLC) to develop the Project.

Project construction

The Project will be built using the safest, least disruptive construction methods that have been developed over the past 70 years.

The Project began construction in mid-September and will continue through to Winter 2022.

We are working towards a targeted in-service date of Q3 2022.
