New network of natural gas pipelines proposed to run from West Texas to Louisiana

A $7 billion pipeline network has been proposed to transport natural gas from shale fields in West Texas to export hubs south of Lake Charles. Houston-based Tellurian is still seeking financing for the project, which will involve the construction of three separate pipelines to accommodate increasing natural gas demand in southern Louisiana.

If the project goes as planned, construction of the export terminal south of Lake Charles will be completed in 2022.

The fossil fuel industry continues to boom in Texas and Louisiana.

Tellurian's proposed network is among more than 15 projects that have been proposed to expand or build pipelines going from the Permian Basin to Houston, Corpus Christi and East Texas. Most of the pipelines are for the transport of natural gas liquids or crude oil.

The Tellurian project is for dry gas that could potentially be converted to liquefied natural gas (LNG) in Louisiana.

As LNG exports grow, southern Louisiana's new demand for natural gas is expected to be 8 billion cubic feet a day by 2025.

Oil and gas industry professionals will undoubtedly want to stay abreast of the status of Tellurian's project as it moves forward.
