HOUSTON, Nov. 29 -- Falcon Gas Storage Co. Inc. plans to build a 63-mile, 24-in. gas pipeline to serve its expanded 16 bcf working capacity Worsham-Steed gas storage facility in the western Barnett shale gas play near Fort Worth, Tex.
Pipeline capacity is expected to be 450 MMcfd, and commercial operation is scheduled to begin Sept. 1, 2007.
Falcon's Worsham-Steed pipeline will extend southward from the Worsham-Steed facility through Jack, Parker, and Hood counties in Texas.
It will interconnect with two existing 36-in. gas transmission pipelines: the North Texas Pipeline, jointly owned by Enterprise Products Partners and Energy Transfer Partners, and the Atmos Energy Corp. Line X pipeline.
In addition to an existing interconnection with Energy Transfer's Old Ocean pipeline at Worsham-Steed, the new pipeline will connect to Devon Energy Corp.'s Acacia pipeline, Atmos' Line WA, and Enterprise's recently announced Sherman extension pipeline that will move gas from the Barnett shale northeast to Boardwalk Pipeline Partners' Gulf Crossing pipeline system.
