In order to proceed with its expansion project, Permian Highway Pipeline, LLC (PHP) has made a final investment decision (FID) after securing legally binding firm transmission agreements for all available capacity.
With the completion of the project, PHP’s capacity will increase by approximately 550 MMcf/d. In order to increase natural gas supply from the Waha area to several major connections, Katy, Texas, and major US Gulf Coast markets, the project will largely require greater compression on PHP. The planned commissioning date of the project is estimated at November 1, 2023, pending the rapid obtaining of all authorizations.
“We are delighted to have reached FID for this very significant expansion,” said Sital Mody, President of Kinder Morgan Natural Gas Midstream. “The project will alleviate transmission constraints outside the Permian Basin to better meet our domestic and global energy needs.”
“This expansion could not come at a more critical time, as it will support future growth in natural gas production in West Texas and provide several liquefaction facilities along the Texas Gulf Coast with more supply. affordable and reliable,” said Jamie Welch, President and CEO. by Kinetik. “In addition, approximately 30 Kinetik customers will have access to premium-priced markets and transportation flow assurance, which is critical to minimizing burnt volumes.
PHP is jointly owned by subsidiaries of Kinder Morgan, Inc., Kinetik Holdings Inc. and ExxonMobil, with 26.7%, 53.3% and 20% ownership, respectively.
