Cheniere Energy Requests Permission to Bring Billion Dollar Midship NatGas Pipeline in Oklahoma Into Service

Cheniere Energy Inc asked U.S. energy regulators on Friday for permission to start working on their $1.025 billion Midship natural gas pipeline in Oklahoma.

The company asked the FERC for authorization to start building the proposed 234-mile pipeline in three segments. The project is expected to be complete by early 2019, Cheniere said.

Midship is designed to deliver 1.44 billion cubic feet per day (bcfd) of gas from the Anadarko basin to existing pipelines near Bennington, Oklahoma to transport liquefied natural gas to Gulf Coast and Southeast markets.

Expectation of total U.S. LNG export capacity should rise to 8.3 bcfd by the end of 2019 and 9.6 bcfd by the end of 2020 from 3.8 bcfd now.

Most of the U.S. LNG export terminals are located or being built along the Gulf of Mexico in Louisiana and Texas
