Kinder Morgan, Inc. says that Kinder Morgan Texas Pipeline, Kinder Morgan Tejas Pipeline and Tennessee Gas Pipeline Company (TGP) have entered into 15-year firm transportation agreements and a multi-year storage agreement with Cheniere Energy, Inc. through its subsidiary, Corpus Christi Liquefaction, LLC. Under the agreements, KMI will provide 550,000 dekatherms per day (Dth/d) of firm natural gas transportation service, as well as 3 billion cubic feet (Bcf) of natural gas storage capacity to serve the LNG export facility being developed near Corpus Christi.

The project is being designed and permitted for up to three trains, with aggregate design production capacity of approximately 13.5 million tonnes per annum (mtpa) of LNG. The natural gas transportation service can be increased to 800,000 Dth/d upon the completion of certain conditions in the Kinder Morgan Texas Pipeline agreement.

KMI will expand its existing Texas intrastate pipeline system in South Texas to provide 250,000 Dth/d of firm transportation and 100 percent of the storage services, and expand its TGP Pipeline to provide 300,000 Dth/d of firm transportation from various Zone 1 receipt points near its Station 87 Pool located in Portland, Tennessee. The construction of the facilities necessary to support these services will be coordinated with the startup of the LNG export facility, which is expected in 2018/2019. KMI expects to invest approximately $187 million for this project.
