Trans-Pecos Pipeline, LLC
Capacity of 1.4 Bcf/d
The Trans-Pecos Pipeline is a Texas Intrastate pipeline designed to transport 1.4 billion cubic feet per day of clean-burning natural gas as part of an agreement with Comision Federal de Electricidad, Mexico’s federal electricity commission. The Trans-Pecos Pipeline went into service on March 31, 2017.
Texas-based Energy Transfer Partners is responsible for operating the 148-mile, 42-inch diameter pipeline which originates at the Waha Hub outside Fort Stockton, Texas in northern Pecos County and terminates custody at the U.S.-Mexico boundary near Presidio, Texas. The pipeline presently includes six delivery taps along the route in Texas for local economic development opportunities.
The Trans-Pecos pipeline provides new market outlets for domestically produced clean-burning natural gas, thereby encouraging continued production in the U.S. energy sector.
Additionally, the Trans-Pecos Pipeline entered into a cooperative effort to help West Texas Gas and the City of Presidio offset constructions costs of a new pipeline what will connect to the Trans-Pecos Pipeline and deliver natural gas to the newly established Presidio Industrial Park. The new lateral pipeline is expected to be in service by June 2017.
