By Jason Cockerham

(P&GJ) — The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) has approved the start of service on the Midship natural gas pipeline owned by Cheniere Energy.

Cheniere applied to begin service on the Midcontinent Supply Header Interstate Pipeline Project (MIDSHIP) on April 1, and it was approved on April 16.

The total pipeline system covers nearly 234 miles originating in Kingfisher, Oklahoma and terminating at interconnects with other existing gas lines near Bennington, Oklahoma.

The main line consists of 200 miles with a 20-mile, 30-inch lateral to the Chisolm processing plant and a second 13-mile, 16-inch lateral to the Velma processing plant.

The system will ship up to 1.44 bcfd of natural gas from the SCOOP and STACK plays in the Anadarko basin to Cheniere LNG facilities on the Gulf Coast.

In addition to the mainline, three compressor stations, seven receipt meter stations and a booster station on the Velma lateral will also be built.

The project cost approximately $1 billion.
