U.S. LNG export player Cheniere Energy’s unit, Midship Pipeline Company signed agreements with foundation shippers to support the construction of a 200-mile natural gas pipeline to the Gulf Coast.
In addition to the precedent agreements, the company launched a binding open season seeking additional long-term commitments from shippers.
The Midship project is being developed to create pipeline capacity of up to 1,400,000 dekatherms per day of firm transportation to connect production from the emerging STACK and SCOOP resource plays in the Anadarko Basin in Oklahoma to growing Gulf Coast and Southeast markets.
The project is expected to consist of approximately 200 miles of 36-inch diameter new mainline pipeline, several laterals, compressor stations and interconnects that will provide deliveries to Bennington, Oklahoma, the TexOk hub near Atlanta, Texas, and the Perryville Hub near Tallulah, Louisiana.
Midship has secured commitments from subsidiaries and/or affiliates of Cheniere, Devon Energy Corporation, Marathon Oil Corporation, and Gulfport Energy Corporation.
