Kinder Morgan Texas Pipeline LLC, EagleClaw Midstream Ventures, and Apache Corporation made an announcement yesterday that they signed a letter of intent to develop the proposed Permian Highway Pipeline Project (PHP Project).
The PHP Project will serve as an additional outlet for the increase in natural gas production that links the Permian Basin to the growing markets that stretch across the Texas Gulf Coast.
The project would transport a maximum of 2 billion ft^3/d of natural gas that crosses 430 miles of 42 inch pipeline from the Waha, Texas area to US Gulf Coast and Mexico markets.
Kinder Morgan is also looking at the feasibility of a 48-inch pipeline to increase transportation capacity.
The project is expected to be in service in late 2020.
