Pipeline developer Kinder Morgan announced its Permian Highway Pipeline began full service on January 1, 2021, transporting natural gas from the Permian Basin to Katy, TX and with connections to markets along the Gulf and in Mexico.
The pipeline has been flowing volumes during the commissioning process for several weeks prior to full commercial in-service. Now in full service, the pipeline provides 2.1 billion cubic feet per day of incremental natural gas capacity, key to helping reduce Permian natural gas flaring.
Below is a statement that can be attributed to me, Craig Stevens, spokesman for the GAIN Coalition:
“The GAIN Coalition applauds Kinder Morgan for completing the Permian Highway Pipeline and investing in our nation’s energy future. This pipeline will be instrumental in helping to meet Texas’s goals of reducing flaring and increasing consumer access to reliable, affordable domestically-produced natural gas, all while bolstering American national and economic security. The project created thousands of family-sustaining jobs in the midst of a global pandemic, and will continue to provide tax revenues and economic opportunities while serving Texas for decades to come.”
