Texas Gas Transmission, LLC ("Texas Gas") is an interstate pipeline that moves natural gas from Gulf Coast and Fayetteville Shale supply areas to more distant on-system markets in the Midwest and to off-system markets in the Northeast via interconnections with third-party pipelines. It 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 6,020 miles of pipeline having an average daily throughput of approximately 2.6 billion cubic feet (Bcf) per day in 2015;
  • Nine natural gas storage fields located in Indiana and Kentucky, which have approximately 84.3 Bcf of working gas capacity.

Markets Served


Texas Gas’s 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 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 development of the Marcellus and Utica Shales in the Northeast U.S., has resulted in several growth projects which, when completed, will allow for the bi-directional movement of natural gas from north to south on the Texas Gas system.

  • 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.
