Background

The Odyssey system is a 120-mile network of pipelines, varying in diameter from 12 to 20 inches, with capacity to deliver up to 300,000 barrels per day of crude oil from oil fields in the eastern Gulf of Mexico to the Delta Oil Pipeline, which delivers oil to terminals and refineries in Louisiana. Oil is collected from the Na Kika Oil Field, Petronius Oil And Gas Field, Ram Powell Oil And Gas Field, the Horn Mountain Oil Field, and the Delta House Oil And Gas Field. In 2012, Genesis Energy acquired a 29% stake in the pipeline from owner Shell.[1][2]
