Safety Within the Community
Our goal is to provide safe and beneficial underground natural gas service to the communities we cross and the customers we serve.
The Trans-Pecos Pipeline is a Texas intrastate pipeline designed to transport 1.4 billion cubic feet per day of clean-burning natural gas as part of an agreement with Comisión Federal de Electricidad, Mexico’s federal electricity commission.
Texas-based Energy Transfer Partners is responsible for constructing and operating the 148-mile, 42-inch diameter pipeline which will originate at the Waha Hub outside Fort Stockton, Texas in northern Pecos County. The pipeline will include delivery locations for local towns and utilities in Central West Texas and terminate custody at the U.S.-Mexico boundary near Presidio, Texas.
The Trans-Pecos pipeline will provide new market outlets for domestically produced clean-burning natural gas, thereby encouraging continued production in the U.S. energy sector. Construction is anticipated to start by Q1 2016 and the project is expected to be in service by the end of Q1 2017.
Thank you for your interest in the Trans-Pecos Pipeline. If you have questions about the project, please contact the project’s toll-free number at 1-800-321-7423.
The Trans-Pecos Pipeline has begun surveying the area as part of its process to identify the desired route that creates safe and reliable transmission infrastructure. To accomplish this, we are performing civil, environmental and endangered species surveys.
As currently planned, the 148-mile pipeline will originate at the Waha Hub outside of Fort Stockton in northern Pecos County where there will be one compressor station providing all necessary horsepower for the entire route. The pipeline will include delivery locations with local towns and utilities in Central West Texas and terminate custody at the U.S.-Mexico boundary near Presidio, Texas.
