Cheniere Energy plans new natural gas pipeline for Sabine Pass expansion

(UI) – According to Reuters, Cheniere Energy’s Chief Operating Officer, Corey Grindal, said that the company is considering plans to build a new pipeline linking its Sabine Pass expansion project to other shale-gas infrastructure. Grindal said the project “will get us Haynesville (shale gas), any additional Marcellus (gas) that will come down, mid-continent, Permian as well as Eagle Ford as it continues to be developed.”

Reuters reported that the Sabine Pass facility needs “additional natural gas beyond current supplies to reach its planned ‘Stage 5’ capacity.” While the company has upgraded some of its pipeline network to route gas to the facility, they aren’t capable of increasing capacity.

Chenerie’s website states that the new pipeline design will produce up to 20 million tonnes per annum (MTPA) of LNG. Analysts anticipate the projects approval, as it comes with less environmental risks.
