Tellurian announces intent to develop three pipelines as part of a Tellurian Pipeline Network

HOUSTON, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 12/18/17 -- Tellurian Inc. (Tellurian) (NASDAQ: TELL) announced today that it expects to develop the Tellurian Pipeline Network, which would include the previously announced Driftwood Pipeline (DWPL) and two additional pipelines that would expand supply alternatives for the growing natural gas demand in Southwest Louisiana. DWPL is anticipated to be in-service mid-2021 and the additional two pipelines are anticipated to be in-service by the end of 2022, subject to commercialization.

  • The newly proposed Permian Global Access Pipeline (PGAP) would be an approximately 625-mile, 42-inch diameter pipeline transporting 2 billion cubic feet of natural gas per day (Bcf/d). PGAP would originate at the Waha Hub in Pecos County, Texas, and would connect to the Permian and associated shale plays located around Midland, Texas. PGAP would terminate near Gillis, Louisiana, with proposed deliveries to the Creole Trail Pipeline, Cameron Interstate Pipeline, Trunkline Gas Company, Texas Eastern, Transco, Tennessee Gas Pipeline, Florida Gas Transmission, and DWPL, among others.
  • The newly proposed Haynesville Global Access Pipeline (HGAP) would be an approximately 200-mile, 42-inch diameter pipeline also transporting 2 Bcf/d with proposed deliveries to the same interstate pipelines near Gillis, Louisiana.
  • The previously announced DWPL is a 96 mile, 48-inch diameter natural gas pipeline transporting 4 Bcf/d from near Gillis, Louisiana and terminating at Driftwood LNG. DWPL is currently under permitting with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.

President and CEO Meg Gentle said, "The Tellurian Pipeline Network would serve the approximately 8 Bcf/d of incremental natural gas demand expected by 2025 in Southwest Louisiana. When completed, PGAP and HGAP will deliver natural gas from multiple low cost production basins and debottleneck the existing pipeline infrastructure in Southwest Louisiana. We intend to begin soliciting third party shipper interest in the first half of 2018, and would seek to commercialize PGAP and HGAP by year end 2018. The proposed Tellurian Pipeline Network represents approximately $7 billion of investment in infrastructure and 15,000 jobs in Texas and Louisiana."

Gentle continued, "We welcome Joey Mahmoud to our leadership team as President of the pipeline network. He brings more than 27 years of pipeline and energy development experience to Tellurian. He was instrumental in executing over $30 billion of energy-related infrastructure as the Executive Vice President of Engineering and Construction at Energy Transfer and will strengthen our commitment to deliver projects on time and on budget."
