Kinder Morgan, SK E&S LNG Announce Long-Term Transportation Pact, Lateral Development Project 

Kinder Morgan on Monday, Dec 8, announced its Texas Intrastate Pipelines group has entered into a 20-year transportation services agreement with SK E&S LNG under which Kinder will invest more than $150 million to provide more than 320 million cubic feet per day (MMcf/d) of natural gas transportation services to support SK LNG’s Train III liquefied natural gas export capacity at Quintana Island, TX.

The train is part of Freeport LNG Development’s Freeport LNG export facility which will liquefy up to 13.2 million tonnes per annum (MMTY) once fully operational.

Kinder will construct and operate roughly 40 miles of pipeline extending from its existing Kinder Morgan Texas mainline to an interconnection point with Freeport LNG’s existing pipeline located in Stratton Ridge, TX.

The company will also expand and construct additional compression on its existing Kinder Morgan Texas and Kinder Morgan Texas pipeline systems once Train III is operating, expected in the third quarter of 2019.
