Within 3 months, the United States put into operation 4 new gas pipelines

More natural gas pipelines could enter into service in the U.S. in coming years, despite the Joe Biden Administration’s climate agenda

Within 3 months, the United States put into operation 4 new gas pipelines

Washington, March 17 - Neftegaz.RU. According to the Energy Information Administration (EIA), from November 2020 through January 2021, approximately 4.4 billion cubic feet per day (Bcf/d) of new natural gas pipeline capacity entered service in the United States.

4 gas projects have recently been completed and entered service:

Saginaw Trail Pipeline
  • Consumer Energy’s $610 million intrastate pipeline entered service in late November 2020
  • The project replaced and expanded natural gas pipelines and infrastructure in Saginaw, Genesse, and Oakland Counties in Michigan, increasing natural gas capacity by 0.2 Bcf/d
Buckeye Xpress Project
  • Columbia Gas Transmission’s (CGT) 0.3 Bcf/d project began operations in December 2020
  • The $709 million project involved infrastructure improvements and replaced 66 miles of existing natural gas pipeline with more reliable 36-inch pipe in Ohio and West Virginia
  • The project increases transportation capacity out of the Appalachia Basin into CGT’s interconnection in Leach, Kentucky, and the TCO Pool in West Virginia
Permian Highway Pipeline
  • Kinder Morgan’s Permian Highway Pipeline (PHP) entered service in early January
  • The 430-mile pipeline brings 2.1 Bcf/d of additional natural gas capacity from the Waha Hub, located in West Texas near production activities in the Permian Basin, to Katy, Texas, near the Gulf Coast
  • It has additional connections to Mexico
Agua Blanca Expansion Project
  • Whitewater/MPLX’s Agua Blanca Expansion Project, which entered service in late January, connects to nearly 20 natural gas processing sites in the Delaware Basin
  • It transports an additional 1.8 Bcf/d of natural gas to the Waha Hub in West Texas
  • The project will also connect with the Whistler Pipeline, which is scheduled to be completed in the 3rd quarter of 2021 and is expected to move 2.0 Bcf/d of natural gas from the Permian Basin to the Texas Gulf Coast
In December, Tellurian withdrew its application to build the Permian Global Access Pipeline in Texas and Louisiana, effectively canceling the project.
The proposed 2.0 Bcf/d project would have transported natural gas from the Permian Basin to a proposed LNG facility in Gillis, Louisiana.
