Gulf Coast Express Pipeline LLC (GCX) announced May 16 an open season to solicit commitments for an expansion project on its system. Upon achieving a final investment decision, the project will increase GCX’s capacity by nearly 570 million cubic feet per day (MMcf/d).
The project will involve primarily compression expansions on the GCX system to increase natural gas deliveries from the Permian Basin to South Texas markets. Pending customer commitments, the target in-service date for the project is Dec. 1, 2023.
The open season begins May 16 and ends June 6, though GCX reserves the right to extend the open season as needed. Those interested in obtaining more detailed information about this open season can visit this page on the Kinder Morgan website or contact Enrique Valencia, director of business development in Kinder Morgan’s Natural Gas group at (713) 420-5017 or by email at Enrique_Valencia@kindermorgan.com.
