Tellurian subsidiary Permian Global Access Pipeline LLC (PGAP), Houston, is holding a nonbinding open season to secure prospective shippers for a proposed 42-in. interstate natural gas pipeline connecting the Permian basin in Texas to Southwest Louisiana.

The proposed pipeline will extend 625 miles with the capacity to transport 2 bcfd of gas. With multiple receipt and delivery locations connecting multiple common gathering points and third-party pipelines expected, the pipeline will connect supply sources originating at or near the Waha Hub in Pecos County, Tex., and will deliver gas near Gillis, Jefferson Davis parishes in Louisiana.

“Natural gas production from the Permian is expected to exceed 12 [bcfd] by 2023 and continue to grow through the middle of the decade,” said Tellurian Pres. and Chief Executive Officer Meg Gentle, driving the need for new infrastructure “to reach growing export and industrial demand in Southwest Louisiana and to establish crude production flow assurance.”

At a cost of $3.7 billion, construction is projected to begin as early as 2021 with an in-service target as early as 2022.

PGAP is part of Tellurian’s proposed Tellurian Pipeline Network and incremental to the $15.2-billion investment that Tellurian plans for Driftwood LNG, a proposed LNG export facility near Lake Charles, La. (OGJ Online, Nov. 17, 2017).
