AUSTIN, Texas—The Whistler Pipeline began full commercial service on July 1, 2021 providing approximately 2 billion cubic feet per day (Bcf/d) of incremental natural gas transport capacity to the Texas Gulf Coast markets from the Permian basin, members of the consortium that own the pipeline said on Aug. 2.
The pipeline’s operation will help ensure sufficient reliable gas takeaway and reduce natural gas flaring in the Permian Basin, the group said in a statement. The delivery points in the Agua Dulce provide shippers with access to Gulf Coast industrial and export markets including LNG.
The Whistler Pipeline is 100% owned by Whistler Pipeline LLC, which is a consortium made up of MPLX LP, WhiteWater Midstream and a joint venture between Stonepeak Infrastructure Partners and West Texas Gas Inc.
The Whistler Pipeline is an approximately 450-mile, 42-inch intrastate pipeline that transports natural gas from the Waha Header in the Permian Basin to Agua Dulce, Texas, providing direct access to South Texas and export markets. An approximately 50-mile 36-inch lateral provides connectivity to the Midland Basin.
