The Houston-based LNG export project developer, Tellurian said its unit Haynesville Global Access Pipeline (HGAP) is offering a non-binding open season for the Haynesville Global Access Pipeline.
HGAP is looking to secure prospective shippers for the proposed 42-inch natural gas pipeline connecting the Haynesville and Bossier shale production region to growing natural gas demand in Southwest Louisiana.
It is estimated to cost approximately $1.4 billion to construct and will have the capacity to transport up to two billion cubic feet of natural gas per day. Construction is projected to begin in 2022, with an in-service date of mid-2023, Tellurian said in a statement on Wednesday.
HGAP is part of Tellurian’s proposed Tellurian Pipeline Network, a project that represents a $7.0 billion investment which is incremental to the $15.2 billion investment that Tellurian plans for Driftwood LNG, a proposed liquefied natural gas (LNG) export facility near Lake Charles, Louisiana.
President and CEO Meg Gentle said, “HGAP will connect the Haynesville Shale with growing markets in Southwest Louisiana, where natural gas demand is expected to triple, reaching approximately 12 billion cubic feet per day by 2025.”
The proposed pipeline will stretch approximately 200 miles and interconnect with the Midcontinent Express and Gulf Crossing pipelines in Claiborne Parish and to other pipelines located near Gillis in Calcasieu Parish, Louisiana.
The pipeline system is anticipated to have multiple receipt and delivery locations, connecting industrial facilities and other third-party pipelines.
The open season will begin on Wednesday, February 21, 2018, and runs through April 6, 2018.
