Sempra Energy has launched an open season “for an additional 1.15 Bcf/d of firm incremental capacity” that may be made available on a segment of a pipeline that would feed gas to its proposed Port Arthur LNG export terminal in Texas. The shipper solicitation, which began on September 16, runs through until September 30.

Sempra said the 7.6-mile Texas Connector South segment would extend from the liquefaction terminal to interconnections with interstate pipelines in Cameron Parish, Louisiana.

The 26.6-mile Texas Connector North segment would then extend from the terminal to interconnections with Houston Pipeline Company, Texas Eastern Transmission, and Florida Gas Transmission, as well as underground storage facilities in Jefferson County, Texas.

According to Sempra, the full 1.9 Bcf/d capacity of the Texas Connector project has been subscribed. However, due to changes in upstream interconnections and flow assumptions, it is anticipated that an additional 1.15 Bcf/d of capacity may be made available on the Texas Connector North segment.

It said demand for the capacity that has already been subscribed is largely dependent on the construction of the LNG terminal.
