Overview

 

Texas Gas Transmission ("Texas Gas") is a bi-directional interstate natural gas pipeline that provides transportation and storage services for customers across our system. We transport natural gas from Fayetteville, Marcellus and Utica shale plays and Gulf Coast supply areas to end-use markets. We directly serve end-use markets primarily in the Midwest and indirectly serve markets through deliveries into third party pipelines. Texas Gas originates in the Louisiana, East Texas and Arkansas and runs north and east through Louisiana, Arkansas, Mississippi, Tennessee, Kentucky, Indiana, and into Ohio, with smaller diameter lines extending into Illinois. 

 

Pipeline and Storage Facilities

 

 The Texas Gas system is composed of:

 

  • Approximately 6,025 miles of pipeline having an average daily throughput of approximately 2.4 billion cubic feet (Bcf) per day in 2016;
  • Nine natural gas storage fields located in Indiana and Kentucky, which have approximately 84.3 Bcf of working gas capacity.

  

Markets Served

  

Texas Gas directly serves LDCs, municipalities and power generators in its market areas, which encompasses eight states in the South and Midwest and includes the Memphis, Tennessee; Louisville, Kentucky; Cincinnati and Dayton, Ohio; and Evansville and Indianapolis, Indiana metropolitan areas.  Texas Gas also has indirect market access to, and receives supply from, the Northeast through interconnections with unaffiliated pipelines. A large portion of the gas delivered by the Texas Gas system is used for heating during the winter months.

The principal sources of supply for Texas Gas are:

  

  • Regional supply hubs and market centers: offshore Louisiana; Perryville, Louisiana; Henry Hub; Agua Dulce; and Carthage, Texas;

  • Wellhead supplies: Fayetteville Shale in Arkansas, East Texas, northern and southern Louisiana and Mississippi; and

  • Canadian natural gas through a pipeline interconnect with Midwestern Gas Transmission Company at Whitesville, Kentucky.
