Mitsubishi, Tennessee Gas Pipeline Ink U.S. LNG Export Deal

July 2013, Vol. 240 No. 7

Tennessee Gas Pipeline Co. LLC (TGP), a unit of Kinder Morgan Energy Partners LP, has signed a binding, 20-year firm transportation precedent agreement with Mitsubishi Corp. (MC) of Japan to ship 600,000 Dth/d of natural gas earmarked for the proposed Cameron LNG liquefaction facility in Hackberry, LA, which is slated to begin exports in 2017.

MC will serve as foundation shipper for TGP’s Southwest Louisiana Supply Project, which is designed to provide transportation from various supply basins in Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas and Louisiana to Cameron Interstate Pipeline, which connects directly to the Cameron LNG Terminal. The project includes additional interconnections with shale supply, pipeline laterals and enhancements to TGP’s existing pipeline system to allow for bi-directional flow to the region. TGP will hold a binding open season for additional interest at a later date.
