Energy Transfer Partners, L.P. (ETP) has announced that the Trans-Pecos and Comanche Trail natural gas pipelines in West Texas are in service. Both pipelines are owned by affiliates of ETP, Carso Energy Corp. and MasTec, Inc. as part of long term agreements with Mexico’s Comisión Federal de Electricidad.

The Comanche Trail pipeline went into service as scheduled on 30 January. The 42 in. intrastate pipeline traverses 195 miles through the Pecos, Reeves, Culberson, Hudspeth, and El Paso counties to the Texas-Mexico border in San Elizario (Texas).

This pipeline has been designed to transport 1.1 billion ft3/d of natural gas. At present, it includes seven delivery taps along its route for local economic development opportunities.

The Trans-Pecos pipeline went into service as scheduled on 31 March. This 148 mile, 42 in. intrastate pipeline traverses the Pecos, Brewster and Presidio counties before terminating at the Texas border near Presidio (Texas).

The Trans-Pecos pipeline is designed to transport 1.4 billion ft3/d of natural gas and includes six local delivery taps along its route.

In addition, the Trans-Pecos pipeline has entered into a co-operative effort to help West Texas Gas and the City of Presidio offset construction costs of a new pipeline that will connect to the Trans-Pecos pipeline and deliver natural gas to the newly established Presidio Industrial Park. The new lateral pipeline is expected to be in service by June 2017.
