Energy transfer company plans East Texas pipeline.

Dallas-based Energy Transfer Company plans construction of a new natural gas pipeline in East Texas. The route of the new pipeline will extend from Limestone County to Katy and is the first phase of a multi-step program aimed at allowing greater access out of the East Texas area to the intrastate and interstate markets accessible at the Katy Hub.

Energy Transfer officials say that industry has long recognized a need for additional pipeline capacity from the area to diversified markets at the Katy Hub. This new pipeline, which expands Energy Transfer's existing South Texas and Oasis pipeline systems, is expected to begin operations in mid-2004, with an initial capacity of 650 MMcf/d expandable to 1 Bcf/d.

According to company officials, Ft. Worth-based XTO Energy Inc. became one of the first to sign a long-term agreement to transport a significant portion of its East Texas gas production on the proposed pipeline. Energy Transfer is in discussion with other producers in the area to bring additional gas to the new pipeline.

Energy Transfer officials say the company's pipeline system is made up of approximately 4,500 miles of natural gas gathering and transmission lines with an aggregate throughput capacity of 2.5 Bcf/d. The company also holds natural gas treating and processing assets in Texas, Oklahoma and Louisiana.
