Kinder Morgan’s Gulf Coast Express Pipeline Placed in Service

Kinder Morgan’s 2 Bcf/d Gulf Coast Express Pipeline (GCX) began full commercial in-service ahead of schedule helping relieve natural gas takeaway constraints and reduce flaring in the Permian Basin.

The pipeline, which is fully subscribed under long-term contracts, will deliver natural gas from the Waha area of the Permian Basin in the West Texas to Aqua Dulce, near the Texas Gulf Coast.

“We had over 3,000 contractors deployed at times and more than six million contractor hours worked – all without a major safety incident during the construction phases of the project,” said Kinder Morgan Natural Gas Midstream President Sital Mody.

Kinder Morgan Texas Pipeline, a subsidiary of KMI, owns a 34% interest in GCX and is the operator of the pipeline. Other equity holders include Altus Midstream, DCP Midstream and an affiliate of Targa Resources.
