Dec. 16 (Bloomberg) -- Royal Dutch Shell Plc plans to seek binding commitments to transport oil on its proposed Westward Ho pipeline after receiving enough interest from shippers, the company said in a statement.
Shell plans to conduct an open season for commitments in early 2012 to ship on the 30-inch line that would run from St. James, Louisiana, to the Port Neches/Nederland, Texas, area, the company said.
The Westward Ho line, which would ship around 600,000 barrels a day, may be completed and commissioned by early 2015, according to Shell.
