Port Arthur Products

Shell Pipeline Company L.P. (Shell) has sold its interest in the Port Arthur Products Station (PAPS) and Shell Ex Facility to Colonial Pipeline Company. The transaction closed on June 1st, 2015 after completion of due diligence and appropriate regulatory review.

As part of normal business practice, Shell continually reviews its portfolio to meet the ever changing market conditions and optimize resources for future strategic opportunities that will capture greatest value. 

SPLC will continue to operate PAPS and the Shell Ex Facility safely and efficiently during the transition to Colonial.  

The Port Arthur Products Station (PAPS), located in Port Arthur, TX, receives and stores clean products from local refineries. The tank farm has storage capacity of approximately 4 million barrels and deliveries through the station gain access to markets served by the Colonial and Explorer pipelines.
