Expanding US LNG Exports: 20 Bcf/d Pipeline Projects

Hey everyone, guess what's happening across the U.S. right now? Several states are in the midst of an exciting transformation, building and expanding massive natural gas pipelines. And why, you ask? It's all to back up the rapidly growing industry of liquefied natural gas (LNG) export terminals!

Here's a mind-blowing fact: there's over 20 billion cubic feet per day (Bcf/d) of natural gas pipeline capacity currently in the works to support not one, but five new LNG export terminals in the U.S, according to EIA. And get this – about 13.5 Bcf/d of that capacity is already under construction as we speak! This massive undertaking is overseen by big names like the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission and the Railroad Commission of Texas. So, we're talking about a huge boost in our ability to export LNG, putting the U.S. on the map as a major player in the global energy scene. How cool is that?

Here's a summary of the key states and their respective pipeline projects:


Texas:

Golden Pass Pipeline: An expansion to deliver 2.5 Bcf/d of natural gas to the Golden Pass LNG terminal in Jefferson County.


Louisiana Connector Project and Texas Connector Project: Two pipelines with a capacity of 2.0 Bcf/d each, delivering natural gas to the Port Arthur LNG export terminal in Jefferson County.


ADCC Pipeline: Constructed by WhiteWater Midstream, this 39-mile pipeline with a 1.7 Bcf/d capacity is intended for the Corpus Christi Stage III project.


Corpus Christi Stage III Pipeline: A 21-mile pipeline with a 1.5 Bcf/d capacity, co-located with an existing pipeline for the Corpus Christi Stage III project.


Rio Bravo Pipeline: Two 138-mile pipelines with a combined capacity of 4.5 Bcf/d, designed to deliver natural gas from the Agua Dulce supply area to the Rio Grande LNG terminal in Brownsville.


Louisiana:

Gator Express Pipeline: Venture Global's project involves constructing two pipelines, each with approximately 2.0 Bcf/d capacity, for the Plaquemines LNG export terminal located south of New Orleans.


Evangeline Pass Expansion Project: A 13-mile pipeline by Tennessee Gas Pipeline Company, with a capacity of 1.1 Bcf/d, to deliver natural gas to the Plaquemines LNG export terminal.


Venice Extension Project: Constructed by Texas Eastern Transmission, this three-mile pipeline with a 1.3 Bcf/d capacity is aimed at the Plaquemines LNG export terminal.


Mississippi (as part of the Evangeline Pass Expansion Project):

The pipeline connects from a Southern Natural Gas Company interconnection in Mississippi to a new interconnection with the Gator Express Pipeline in Louisiana.


These pipelines are a part of a larger network aimed at strengthening the natural gas supply chain to meet both domestic and international demands, especially in the context of increasing LNG exports from the United States.
