By the end of 2018, EIA expects natural gas pipeline capacity into the South Central region of the US to reach almost 19 billion ft3/d.

Gas pipeline capacity to south central US to rise this year

The region has shifted from being a source of natural gas supply to a source of growing demand, reversing the historical flows of natural gas in the Lower 48 states. Natural gas pipeline projects scheduled to come online in 2018 will bring additional supply to the Gulf Coast and support growing export markets.

Of the additional 6.4 billion ft3/d of Northeast capacity planned to come online in 2018, more than 2.8 billion ft3/d reaches the South Central region directly through three projects that transport natural gas through the Midwest and Southeast: Rayne Xpress, Gulf Xpress, and Atlantic Sunrise. Further west, Natural Gas Pipeline of America’s Gulf Coast Southbound Phase 1 is scheduled to enter service in October 2018. This pipeline will transport up to 0.46 billion ft3/d of natural gas from Illinois into south Texas and Louisiana, where it will supply the Corpus Christi LNG export facility and pipelines into Mexico.
