In order to finalize the CJ Express pipeline expansion project, Midcoast Energy, LLC has announced a binding open season that will run through 17 May 2019 and expects to expeditiously complete negotiations with additional shippers.
The company has already entered into commercial agreements with an anchor shipper and one of the leading producers in the Haynesville for this project. The pipeline will include up to 107 miles of 36 inch pipeline and a 39,000 horse power compressor station.
The pipeline is expected to provide incremental delivery capacity for up to 1.0 billion cubic feet per day of natural gas produced in the Haynesville into premium demand markets along the US Gulf Coast markets.
The company expects the expansion project to have an in-service date in early 2021. CJ Express will connect Midcoast's existing pipeline assets in San Augustine County, Texas, and growing production in the Carthage and Shelby Trough area of the Haynesville Shale, to Midcoast's Clarity pipeline near Silsbee, Texas.
