Whistler Pipeline LLC has reached a final investment decision to move forward with expansion of the Whistler natural gas pipeline after having secured sufficient firm transportation agreements with shippers.
The expansion will increase the mainline transport capacity to Texas Gulf Coast markets from the Permian basin to 2.5 bcfd from 2 bcfd through the planned installation of three new compressor stations. The expansion is expected to be in service in September 2023.
Whistler is a 450-mile, 42-in. OD transmission line running between the Waha hub and Agua Dulce and an 85-mile, 36-in. OD lateral providing connectivity to the Midland basin.
Whistler is owned by MPLX LP, WhiteWater Midstream, and a joint venture of Stonepeak Infrastructure Partners and West Texas Gas Inc.
