Midcoast Energy LLC is proposing the new CJ Express Pipeline, which will be incorporated into the existing Midcoast East Texas system. A non-binding open season for the project ends Sept. 14.
Midcoast East Texas is the largest gathering and processing system in the East Texas basin with more than 4,300 miles of pipeline, 1.3 Bcf/d of treating capacity, 700 MMcf/d of processing capacity and current throughput of over 1.3 Bcf/d. Midcoast East Texas has recently seen substantial volume growth with increased production from the East Texas and Louisiana Haynesville Shale. CJ Express will provide natural gas transportation services directly from the Carthage area to Houston Ship Channel and Gulf Coast markets.
The CJ Express Pipeline will consist of up to 150 miles of 36 in. or larger diameter pipeline, commencing near Carthage in Panola County, Texas, and extending south to Midcoast’s Clarity Pipeline in Hardin County, Texas, to provide for deliveries to Trunkline Gas (NTX), Gulf South (Area 10), TRANSCO (Zone 2), TETCO (STX & WLA), Florida Gas (Zone 1), Tennessee Gas (100 Line), Kinder Morgan Texas Pipeline, Atmos Texas Pipeline and Channel Industries Gas.
Midcoast anticipates CJ Express to be completed in mid-2020. Project details and bid forms for the open season can be found at midcoastenergy.com/cj-express-pipeline-project.
Midcoast Operating LP was acquired by ArcLight Capital Partners Aug. 1 for approximately $1.1 billion in cash from Enbridge Inc. Midcoast consists of three large, legacy gathering and processing systems in Texas and Oklahoma, a long-haul NGL transmission system delivering NGLs from multiple supply areas (including the DJ and Permian basins) to Mont Belvieu, Texas, and a marketing and logistics business.
