NGPL and Cheniere agree on NG transportation to Corpus Christi Liquefaction Project

Natural Gas Pipeline Co. of America LLC (NGPL) has an agreement with Corpus Christi Liquefaction LLC, a subsidiary of Cheniere Energy Inc., to provide the Corpus Christi Liquefaction Project with 385,000 dekatherms per day of southbound natural gas transportation capacity on NGPL’s expanded Gulf Coast mainline system for a 20-year term.

NGPL expects to invest approximately $212 million in facilities to enable it to complete the first phase of its Gulf Coast Market Expansion Project, which will increase NGPL’s total southbound capacity from multiple receipt points, including the Rockies Express Pipeline (REX) interconnection at Moultrie, Illinois, to existing and growing markets along Texas and the Louisiana Gulf Coast.

The Gulf Coast Market Expansion project will include the reversal of four compressor stations in Victoria, Wharton, Montgomery and Angelina counties, Texas; the addition of a new compressor station in Cass County, Texas; and minor pipe replacement and upgrades along the NGPL system in Texas. Pending regulatory approvals, the project is expected to be placed fully into service by July 2019.
