Port Arthur Pipeline, a subsidiary of Sempra LNG, has announced the start of a binding open season to solicit bids for firm natural gas transportation service on the company’s incremental firm capacity of the proposed Texas Connector project facilities.
The approximately 34.2 mile Texas Connector project, approved by the US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), will consist of two segments of 42 inch diameter pipeline: the 7.6 mile Texas Connector South Segment, extending from the proposed Port Arthur LNG liquefaction facility to interconnections with the facilities of interstate pipelines in Cameron Parish, La.; and the 26.6 mile Texas Connector North Segment extending from the Port Arthur LNG liquefaction facility to interconnections with the facilities of Houston Pipeline Company, Texas Eastern Transmission, and Florida Gas Transmission Company, as well as underground storage facilities in Jefferson County, Texas.
As currently approved, the full 1.9 billion ft3/d capacity of the Texas Connector project has been subscribed. However, due to changes in the upstream interconnections and flow assumptions, it is anticipated that an additional 1.15 billion ft3/d of capacity may be made available on the Texas Connector North Segment.
The open season bid period began at 8 am CT on 16 September 2020 and will end at 5 pm CT on 30 September 2020.
