Double E Applies for New Permian Pipeline

Double E Pipeline, a company owned by subsidiaries of Summit Permian Transmission and US super-major ExxonMobil, has filed an application with the US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (Ferc) for a new interstate pipeline intended to move natural gas from the Delaware basin to the Waha trading hub.

Ferc advised of the application on August 14.

The project will provide 1.35bn ft3/day of firm transportation service from various receipt points in New Mexico and Texas to delivery points near Waha, Texas. It will interconnect with Kinder Morgan’s planned Gulf Coast Express and Permian Highway pipelines and with Energy Transfer Partners’ Trans Pecos pipeline.

The Double E Pipeline Project consists of 116.6 miles (186.6 km) of 30- and 42-inch trunk-line pipe and a 16.3-mile lateral. Cost is estimated at $592.5mn and the capacity is targeted for commissioning in 2021.
