FERC is seeking input from the U.S. State Department and Department of Defense on an application [CP14-513] by Colombia Pipeline LLC for a presidential permit to construct border-crossing pipeline facilities that would enable shipment of U.S. natural gas from the Eagle Ford Shale to Mexico. Colombia filed at the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission for the project on July 1 (see Shale Daily, July 3). The company’s project would allow about 1 Bcf/d of Eagle Ford Shale natural gas to supply power generation and other demand in Mexico. “The border crossing facilities will include one 36-inch diameter, 4,000-foot pipeline and one 12-inch diameter pipeline that will run parallel to the 36-inch diameter pipeline for its full 2,500-foot length,” the Commission told the federal agencies.
