The Houston-based LNG export project developer Tellurian started a non-binding open season to secure shippers for its Permian Global Access pipeline. 

The proposed 42-inch diameter interstate natural gas pipeline connecting the Permian Basin in Texas to Southwest Louisiana is estimated to cost approximately $3.7 billion to construct and will have the capacity to transport two billion cubic feet of natural gas a day.

PGAP is part of Tellurian’s proposed Tellurian Pipeline Network that represents a $7 billion investment in U.S. infrastructure, incremental to the $15.2 billion investment that Tellurian plans for Driftwood LNG, a proposed liquefied natural gas export facility near Lake Charles, Louisiana.

Tellurian president and CEO Meg Gentle said, “Natural gas production from the Permian is expected to exceed 12 billion cubic feet per day by 2023 and continue to grow through the middle of the decade.”

The proposed pipeline will stretch approximately 625 miles and connect supply sources originating at or near the Waha Hub in Pecos County, Texas and will deliver gas near Gillis, Jefferson Davis Parish, Louisiana.

Construction is projected to begin as early as 2021 and the pipeline is targeted to be in service as early as 2022.
