Tellurian Inc. subsidiary Driftwood Pipeline LLC held a binding open season through April 2 to test support for its proposed natural gas pipeline expansion project in Louisiana, reports Natural Gas Intelligence.

The expansion of the pipeline is part of a larger system network planned by Tellurian to supply its 27.6 million metric tons/year Driftwood liquefied natural gas (LNG) under development near Lake Charles. FERC in 2019 authorized the Driftwood pipeline and LNG terminal, but Tellurian has yet to sanction the project.

As designed, Lines 200 and 300 would go into service in three phases. Phase one facilities would comprise a 37-mile pipeline from the proposed Tetco interconnect in Beauregard Parish to the endpoint in Calcasieu Parish. This phase is expected to enter service by September 2024, and would offer service for up to 2.4 Bcf/d.

The dual 42-inch diameter Line 200 and Line 300 pipelines would originate at a proposed interconnect with the Texas Eastern Transmission Co. interstate pipeline system 5.5 miles southeast of Ragley, La. The 37-mile Line 200 and 31-mile Line 300 would then travel west and south across Beauregard and Calcasieu parishes to an endpoint southeast of Carlyss, La. Read the entire story.
