REYNOSA, Tamaulipas – Notimex has posted a story from its Dallas bureau about plans for a 200-mile, 30-inch, natural gas pipeline from Webb County in Texas to Escobedo in Nuevo León.

The Nueva Era Pipeline is being constructed and managed by Howard Midstream Energy Partners, LLC. It will connect to the Mexican National Pipeline System (Sistema Nacional de Gasoductos) in Monterrey and is expected to be in service by July, 2017.

Here is the Notimex story:

DALLAS, Texas, Notimex – La firma texana Howard Midstream Energy Partners, LLC (HEP) anunció hoy la construcción de un gasoducto transfronterizo de unos 320 kilómetros, para enviar gas desde su estación en el Condado de Webb, sur de Texas, a Nuevo León, México.

La compañía, con sede en San Antonio, Texas, expuso en un comunicado que el proyecto denominado Gasoducto Nueva Era será desarrollado junto con una empresa mexicana y tendrá capacidad para transportar un máximo de 600 millones de pies cúbicos de gas natural por día.

El gasoducto transportará gas desde el sur de Texas a la comunidad de Escobedo, Nuevo León, cerca de Monterrey, la capital estatal, y se conectará con el Sistema Nacional de Gasoductos de México.

La nueva línea “conectará a los productores en el sur de Texas directamente con los usuarios finales en México, creando acceso a múltiples mercados en crecimiento”, dijo la compañía.

HEP precisó que el nuevo gasoducto se construye en respuesta a la demanda planteada por los clientes durante un periodo previo de solicitud para el transporte y la exportación de gas natural a México.

“Con el desarrollo de un nuevo gasoducto directamente a Monterrey, podemos ofrecer a los centros industriales del norte de México acceso al gas a precios mas competitivos”, dijo Mike Howard, presidente de Howard Energy Partners.

Además, expuso, se dará a productores del sur de Texas el acceso a varios de los nuevos mercados en crecimiento.

“Esta proyecto de gasoducto es un testimonio de nuestras grandes alianzas en México y las profundas relaciones que hemos desarrollado allí. Nuestra filosofía es que lo que es bueno para México es bueno para el sur de Texas”, señaló Howard.

Howard Midstream Energy Partners issued this news release about the project:

Howard Midstream Energy Partners, LLC (HEP) announced today that it plans to develop the Nueva Era Pipeline, an approximately 200-mile, 30-inch natural gas pipeline connecting its existing Webb County Hub in Webb County, Texas to Escobedo, Nuevo León, Mexico, and the Mexican National Pipeline System (Sistema Nacional de Gasoductos) in Monterrey. HEP is accepting non-binding indications of interest for hub and transportation services on the Nueva Era system from today at 9 a.m. CDT to July 17, 2015 at 5 p.m. CDT.

Expected to be in-service in July 2017, the Nueva Era pipeline, which will be developed in conjunction with HEP’s Mexican partner, will provide seamless transportation service for up to 600 million cubic feet per day of natural gas from South Texas to Escobedo, Nuevo León, near Monterrey. It will connect producers in South Texas directly with end-users in Mexico, creating access to multiple growing markets. The new pipeline is in response to customer demand during HEP’s previously announced period of solicitation of interest for transportation and export of natural gas to Mexico.

“By expanding transportation services off of our Webb County Hub and developing a new pipeline directly to Monterrey, we can provide northern Mexico’s industrial centers with access to the most competitively-priced gas in the country, while giving South Texas producers access to several new, growing markets,” said Mike Howard, Howard Energy Partners’ Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “This proposed pipeline is a testament to our great partnerships in Mexico and the deep relationships we have developed there. Our philosophy is that what is good for Mexico is good for South Texas.”

HEP expects transportation service rates from the U.S.-Mexico border to Escobedo to be between US $0.13 and US $0.20 per thousand cubic feet, subject to the shipper’s required term, level of service, and volume commitment, and pursuant to all Mexican legal requirements including a Comisión Reguladora de Energía transportation permit.

By the publishing of this notice, neither Howard nor any of its subsidiaries or affiliates will be obligated to enter into any third-party agreements and may terminate or amend this solicitation for any reason, at any time.
