Port Arthur Pipeline Texas Connector

Port Arthur Pipeline, LLC, is proposing to develop a natural gas pipeline in connection with the proposed development of the Port Arthur LNG project.

Location


Jefferson and Orange Counties, Texas; Cameron Parish, Louisiana

Capacity


2.0 Bcfd

Size


34.2 miles, 42-inch diameter pipeline

The 26.6-mile northern portion of the proposed Port Arthur Pipeline Texas Connector (PAPTC) project would extend from Vidor in Orange County, TX to the proposed liquefaction project, with the majority of the proposed pipeline co-located with existing energy infrastructure rights-of-way. The approximately seven-mile southern portion of the proposed Pipeline Project would originate in Cameron Parish, Louisiana on the east bank of Sabine Lake and terminate at the Port Arthur Liquefaction Project.

The proposed PAPTC project would interconnect the Port Arthur Liquefaction Project to various intra- and interstate pipelines, providing access to a number of major U.S. natural gas supply basins.

Proposed Project Schedule

Project development and Front End Engineering Design (FEED) activities began in 2014. In March 2015, the project initiated a pre-filing review with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC).

The project received authorization from FERC in April 2019.

Development of Port Arthur LNG and the Pipeline Project – Texas Connector is contingent upon completing the required commercial agreements, securing all necessary permits and approvals, obtaining financing and incentives, achieving other customary conditions, reaching a final investment decision and other factors associated with the investments.

Benefits

  • Pipeline infrastructure provides a reliable solution for the delivery of natural gas to the proposed Port Arthur Liquefaction Project

  • Expected to create new design, engineering and construction jobs, as well as long-term positions to operate and maintain the proposed pipeline facilities

  • Provides a new source of revenue for local providers of goods and services
