The LEAP Gathering Lateral Pipeline is a 155-mile high-pressure lateral pipeline that gathers gas along a spine-like system from Haynesville shale area producers and redelivers gas to interstate pipelines that provide access to petrochemical and refining facilities, power plants and LNG export facilities.

The pipeline's phase 2 and phase 3 expansions are also progressing on schedule, with anticipated in-service dates of Q1 2024 and Q3 2024, respectively. This multi-phased project will ultimately elevate LEAP's total capacity to 1.9 Bcf/d, offering flexibility for future expansions up to 3 Bcf/d.

LEAP currently establishes connectivity between Haynesville production and burgeoning Gulf Coast markets, which are projected to witness growth of more than 8 Bcf/d by 2030. Presently, LEAP customers enjoy access to various operational or under-construction LNG terminals, including Sabine Pass, Cameron, Calcasieu Pass, Plaquemines, and Golden Pass through interconnections with Creole Trail, Cameron Interstate Pipeline, Texas Eastern, and Transco.

David Slater, President and CEO of DT Midstream, commented, "Achieving the early in-service of the LEAP expansion project marks a significant milestone in granting our customers 'wellhead to water' access to premium LNG markets. We take pride in supporting U.S. LNG exports globally, especially during times when energy security and affordability are of utmost importance."
