HOUSTON, Dec. 14 -- Crosstex Energy LP, Dallas, has entered into throughput agreements with Fort Worth basin producers that support construction of a 110-mile, 24-in. pipeline to deliver natural gas from the Barnett shale area in North-Central Texas to major pipelines serving Texas, the Midwest, and the Eastern US.
Initial throughput capacity will be 200 MMcfd of gas. Crosstex expects more commitments to follow, at which time it will consider expanding the line.
The $80 million pipeline will extend from the Justin area north of Fort Worth to interconnections with Natural Gas Pipeline of America and Houston Pipeline Co. mainlines in Lamar County, Tex.
Crosstex has commissioned a feasibility study to be completed by Jan. 15, 2005, and said it expects pipeline construction to be completed by January 2006.
