HOUSTON, June 3 -- Energy Transfer Partners LP announced June 2 the construction of a 63-mile natural gas pipeline serving the East Texas Haynesville, Bossier, and James Lime production areas.

The project, which will start in southeast Shelby County, Tex., cross San Augustine County, and terminate in Nacogdoches County, Tex., will use mostly 20-in. and 24-in. OD pipe and have an initial capacity of 645 MMcfd. The pipeline is supported by gas production from multiple 10-year agreements encompassing roughly 264,000 acres in East Texas.

The pipeline will interconnect directly with two interstate pipelines in addition to ETP’s Houston Pipeline System, which accesses numerous other interstate and intrastate markets including the Carthage, Waha, Katy, and Houston Ship Channel hubs in Texas. ETP expects partial service by this year’s third quarter and full service by the fourth quarter.

In April ETP received approval from the US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission for the 175-mile interstate Tiger gas pipeline, also serving the Haynesville shale and Bossier sands (OGJ Online, Apr. 14, 2010). Tiger construction began June 1 and is expected to be complete in 2011.
