FERC approves ETP's 1.1-Bcf/d San Elizario Crossing for service

FERC approved a request from Energy Transfer Partners LP's Comanche Trail Pipeline LLC to put in service the 1.1-Bcf/d San Elizario Crossing natural gas border-crossing pipeline project between Texas and Mexico.

Rich McGuire, director of the FERC Division of Gas - Environment and Engineering, gave Comanche Trail the authorization in a Jan. 27 letter. FERC authorized the start of construction on the project in July 2016. The commission granted a presidential permit and a Natural Gas Act certificate in May 2016.

Connecting to the Comanche Trail interstate pipeline, the San Elizario project runs from San Elizario in El Paso County, Texas, to a new interconnect in Mexico. The project and another Energy Transfer border project, the 1.3-Bcf/d Presidio project, have access to gas supplies at the Waha Hub in Pecos County, Texas, and deliver gas to meet demand from electric generators and industrial customers in Mexico.
