Liquefied natural gas export company Tellurian announced Monday separate binding open seasons for two proposed pipelines it says will connect areas of constrained shale production and debottleneck natural gas-line infrastructure, Kallanish Energy reports.
Tellurian subsidiary Haynesville Global Access Pipeline LLC is seeking prospective shippers for the previously announced $1 billion Haynesville Global Access Pipeline (Hgap).
The natural gas line is expected to be 42 inches in diameter, and run roughly 160 miles, interconnecting existing pipeline and production facilities in DeSoto Parish, Louisiana, to the existing and proposed infrastructure located near Gillis in Calcasieu Parish, Louisiana.
Hgap’s capacity will be two billion cubic feet per day (Bcf/d) of natural gas. Construction is projected to begin in 2022, with an in-service date of mid-2023.
Tellurian unit Delhi Connector Pipeline LLC is conducting a binding open season for shippers for its newly proposed Delhi Connector Pipeline (Dcpl), a roughly $1.4 billion, 42-inch line running approximately 180 miles, connecting the Perryville/Delhi Hub in Richland Parish, Louisiana, to Gillis.
Dcpl is also supposed to be built with a capacity of 2 Bcf/d. Construction is projected to begin as early as 2021, with an in-service date as early as 2023.
“We are willing to invest and build a pipeline network that connects to key U.S. producing shale basins, detangling the existing pipeline and regional bottlenecks and facilitating the flow of natural gas to feed Southwest Louisiana’s growing industrial demands, which is estimated at 20+ Bcf/d by 2025,” said Meg Gentle, Tellurian’s president and CEO.
Both binding open seasons began Monday, and run through June 21.
These two binding open seasons are in addition to Tellurian’s previously announced Permian Global Access Pipeline (Pgap) whose binding open season began April 8, and ends May 24.
Pgap is a roughly 625-mile long, 42-inch natural gas line originating at the Waha Hub in West Texas, and terminating near Lake Charles, Louisiana.
Already approved by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission is the Driftwood Pipeline, a 96-mile, 48-inch natural gas line transporting 4 Bcf/d from near Gillis to Tellurian’s Driftwood LNG export facility near Lake Charles, Louisiana.
