Staff of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission will prepare an environmental assessment (EA) of the Pomelo Connector Pipeline Project and the South Texas Expansion Project, separate but related projects of Texas Eastern Transmission LP (Tetco) intended to support natural gas exports to Mexico. Comments on the projects [CP15-499] are due at the Commission by May 8. The 30-inch diameter Pomelo would run from Tetco’s Petronila Station in Nueces County, TX, to its Valley Crossing interconnect near Agua Dulce. Valley Crossing Pipeline LLC, originally a unit of Spectra Energy since merged with Enbridge Inc., has proposed a Texas pipeline and U.S.-Mexico border crossing to serve power generation and other gas demand in Mexico as well as in Texas [CP17-19].
