A major pipeline expansion that aims to ease the bottleneck at Cushing, Oklahoma that has depressed U.S. crude prices should pump at full rates from the end of next week, the backers of the project said on Wednesday.

Enterprise Products Partners LP and Enbridge Inc said service on the Seaway pipeline that runs between Cushing and the U.S. Gulf Coast had been suspended to complete the work needed to expand the capacity of the 500-mile pipeline to 400,000 barrels per day.
