Coastal Bend Header Project files with FERC

April 2016

Gulf South Pipeline LP filed with FERC for Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity under CP15-157 for its Coastal Bend Header Project. The Coastal Bend Header Project proposes to build a new supply header pipeline as well as expand and modify sections of Gulf South’s existing Legacy System to transport natural gas from Eagle Ford to Freeport LNG’s liquefaction facility on Quintana Island in Brazoria County, TX. The proposed supply header will consist of 66 miles of 36-inch diameter lateral pipeline located in Wharton and Brazoria County, TX and creates 1.42 Bcf/d of new pipeline capacity.

The Legacy System expansion, specifically Index 129, will provide an additional 1.4 Bcf/d of firm transportation capacity into the Coastal Bend Header through a new interconnect and involves construction of new compressors in Harris and Fort Bend County, TX, and modification to existing Magasco compressor station in Sabine County, TX. In addition, the expansion project also includes piping modification at the existing Goodrich station in Polk County, TX, to allow flow reversal to the south. Gulf South has requested an application decision on or before June 1, 2016, in order to meet the anticipated Spring 2017 construction start date and target April 1, 2018, in-service date.
