HOUSTON, Jan. 24 -- Crosstex Energy LP, Dallas, has begun selling natural gas to Florida markets after completing the connections to 70 miles of pipeline the company acquired from Florida Gas Transmission Co. last June.
The acquired pipeline provides Crosstex with access to Florida markets via an interconnection with the Florida Gas Transmission system from Crosstex's Corpus Christi Natural Gas Co. LP and Gulf Coast systems, including connections to a new supply point at the ConocoPhillips Lobo Pipeline at Agua Dulce field in south Texas.
Gas this week flowed at a rate of 50,000 MMbtu/d. With the new pipeline's delivery capacity of 100,000 MMbtu/d, Crosstex is working to access additional Florida markets.
Crosstex Energy, a midstream company, operates more than 1,700 miles of pipeline, two processing plants, and more than 30 natural gas amine treating plants.
