Midcoast Energy, LLC, through its East Texas operating subsidiary, has entered into commercial agreements with an anchor shipper and one of the leading producers in the Haynesville, for its CJ Express pipeline expansion project. In order to finalise the CJ Express expansion project, Midcoast is conducting a binding open season and expects to expeditiously complete negotiations with additional shippers.
The CJ Express project will deliver natural gas produced in the Haynesville into premium demand markets along the US Gulf Coast. CJ Express will connect Midcoast's existing pipeline assets in San Augustine County, Texas, and growing production in the Carthage and Shelby Trough area of the Haynesville Shale, to Midcoast's Clarity pipeline near Silsbee, Texas. The project is expected to provide incremental delivery capacity for up to 1.0 billion ft3/d from the Carthage area to multiple Gulf Coast markets.
CJ Express will include up to 107 miles of 36 in. pipeline and a 39 000 hp compressor station. Midcoast expects the expansion project to have an in-service date in early 2021.
The open season will run through 17 May 2019.
