Briefs -- Cheniere Midstream Holdings Inc. | Comanche Trail Pipeline LLC

FERC staff will prepare an environmental impact statement for Cheniere Midstream Holdings Inc.'s proposed Midcontinent Supply Header Interstate Pipeline (MIDSHIP) project and is seeking public comment on the project [PF17-3]. It would carry 1.4 Bcf/d of natural gas to connect production out of the Anadarko Basin -- namely the STACK (Sooner Trend of the Anadarko Basin, mostly in Canadian and Kingfisher counties) and SCOOP (South Central Oklahoma Oil Province) -- to markets in the Gulf Coast. The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission will accept public comment through Feb. 27 and has scheduled public scoping sessions in Durant, OK, Feb. 13; Ardmore, OK, Feb. 14; Elmore City, OK, Feb. 15; and El Reno, OK, Feb. 16. Cheniere pre-filed MIDSHIP with FERC in October.

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission has approved a request from Comanche Trail Pipeline LLC to commence service of its San Elizario Crossing project in El Paso County, TX [CP15-503]. FERC granted a request for a presidential permit and authorization to site, construct and operate the 1.1 Bcf/d project, which would export natural gas to Mexico via the proposed intrastate Comanche Trail Pipeline, in May 2016. Plans for the project included construction of a 42-inch diameter pipeline, measuring about 1,086 feet in length, under the Rio Grande near the City of San Elizario, TX. The pipeline would have a maximum design export capacity of approximately 1.1 Bcf/d, and would transport natural gas to a new delivery interconnection near the City of San Isidro, in the Mexican state of Chihuahua. The principal use of the proposed border-crossing pipeline would be to transport exported domestic natural gas for use as fuel in electric generation plants and industrial facilities in Mexico, according to Comanche Trail.
