Today, Energy Transfer announced the completion of the Lone Star Express Pipeline expansion project in Texas. The project, completed ahead of schedule, will alleviate infrastructure constraints in the Delaware and Permian basins. The expansion project adds approximately 400,000 barrels per day of natural gas liquids capacity to the Lone Star Express 30-inch pipeline south of Fort Worth, Texas. The Lone Star pipeline system connects into Energy Transfer’s Mont Belvieu facility along the U.S. Gulf Coast that strategically connects to a number of facilities across the region.
Below is a statement you can attribute to me, Craig Stevens, spokesman for the GAIN Coalition:
“The GAIN Coalition congratulates Energy Transfer on the successful completion of the Lone Star Express Pipeline expansion project. Infrastructure development projects in the Permian and Delaware basins like the Lone Star Express are critical to strengthening the national economy, improving energy security, and alleviating transportation bottlenecks.
The Lone Star Express Pipeline expansion will serve the 13 counties it traverses for years to come with approximately $5 million in tax revenues. GAIN looks forward to the continued growth of the energy industry in Texas.”
