NET Midstream to build 124-mile Eagle Ford Shale Pipeline System to Mexico

NET Midstream

NET Midstream subsidiary NET Mexico Pipeline LP will build a 124-mile, 42" diameter natural gas pipeline system to the Texas / Mexico border, with associated compression. NET Mexico will be anchored by a long term firm gas transportation agreement, for up to 2.1 Bcf/d, with MGI Supply Ltd., an indirect wholly owned subsidiary of Pemex Gas y Petroquimica Basica, the Mexican state-owned gas company.

NET Mexico will transport gas from the Agua Dulce Hub in Nueces County, Texas to a point near Rio Grande City, Texas in Starr County. The pipeline will be placed into service in December 2014.

"NET Mexico Pipeline will be an important source of supply to meet Mexico's growing demand for natural gas" said Joe Gutierrez, co-president of NET. "We look forward to this exciting new partnership with MGI and PEMEX Gas. NET Mexico is a natural next step in our pipeline system, as we connect abundant gas supply from the Eagle Ford Shale to expanding power generation and industrial markets in Mexico."

In addition to NET Mexico, the company operates three pipeline systems in the Eagle Ford Shale. Eagle Ford Midstream is a 150-mile, predominantly 30" intrastate natural gas pipeline that provides gas transmission for the Brasada Processing Plant in LaSalle County (operated by Western Gas Partners), and transports pipeline-quality gas from producers in the Eagle Ford Shale to the Agua Dulce Hub. LaSalle Pipeline is a 52-mile, 16" pipeline which provides the full gas supply requirements for a 200 MW power generation facility located in Pearsall, Texas. South Shore Pipeline is a 30-mile pipeline that serves the City of Corpus Christi under a long-term gas supply and transportation contract.

NET Midstream is a wholly owned subsidiary of NET Holdings Management, LLC, a privately held natural gas midstream and marketing company. The company owns six intrastate gas pipelines in Texas and markets natural gas across the United States. The company is owned 50% by its founders and 50% by an affiliate of ArcLight Capital Partners LLC.

The large and growing surplus of US ethane is leading producers and shippers to step up efforts to export ethane to Europe and eventually to Asia. But there are several hurdles, including the need to construct specialized dock and loading facilities, special ships required to move ethane in overseas trade, unloading and storage facilities at the receiving end, and the need for ethylene crackers in the global market —most of which now use naphtha as their feedstock—to make costly modifications before they can switch to ethane.
