Energy Transfer Partners (ETP) announced the construction of a 63-mile natural gas pipeline that will provide its customers additional transportation, gathering, and treating services in the rapidly expanding Haynesville Shale in East Texas. This is in addition to the Tiger natural gas pipeline the company is building in Louisiana and East Texas.

The pipeline project, which will originate in southeast Shelby County, Texas, traverse San Augustine County and terminate in Nacogdoches County, Texas, will consist of predominately 20- and 24-inch pipe and will have an initial capacity of 645 million cubic feet per day. The pipeline is supported by natural gas production from multiple 10-year agreements that encompass approximately 264,000 acres in the East Texas area. 

The pipeline will interconnect with two interstate pipelines in addition to the Partnership’s Houston Pipeline System, which provides producers the optionality to access numerous other interstate and intrastate markets including the Carthage, Waha, Katy and Houston Ship Channel hubs in Texas. Partial service is expected to begin on the pipeline in the third quarter of this year and the full in-service date is expected to be in the fourth quarter 2010.

“This project shows our continued emphasis on developing organic growth projects and providing producers unparalleled access to markets throughout the country,” said Energy Transfer Partners’ Tim Dahlstrom, Senior Vice-President. “Our partnership is excited about this new opportunity to expand our pipeline network into a rapidly growing area of James Lime, Bossier and Haynesville production.”
