Midcoast Energy Completes CJ Express Pipeline Expansion

P&GJ Staff Report

Texas-based Midcoast Energy completed its CJ Express pipeline expansion project, and it is now in service, the subsidiary announced.

Midcoast Energy, an affiliate of ArcLight Capital Partners, entered into a commercial agreement with an anchor shipper to support the expansion of its pipeline system and transport natural gas supplies from East Texas to the Texas Gulf Coast, according to the company.

CJ Express added compression and pipeline facility at multiple locations on the existing East Texas pipeline system, a news release states. This increases Midcoast’s Clarity pipeline transmission capacity to Gulf Coast markets to about 1 Bcfd and increases gathering capabilities in the Shelby Trough area of the Haynesville Shale, the release said.

Midcoast Energy also announced a firm transportation agreement and natural gas purchase and sales agreement with Golden Pass LNG Terminal, which will become effective after the Midcoast Clarity pipeline in the Beaumont, Texas area is extended to a new interconnect with Golden Pass Pipeline, according to the release. The construction and effective date of commitments will align with Golden Pass LNG’s feedgas needs.
