Natural gas originating in Texas and flowing to other states via interstate pipelines increased to a record-high 10 billion cubic feet

Monday, December 17, 2007

Bentek Energy LLC announced Dec. 11 that natural gas originating in Texas and flowing to other states via interstate pipelines increased to a record-high 10 billion cubic feet of natural gas per day (Bcfd) during the Dec. 8-9 weekend.

The surge in Texas natural gas leaving the state is largely the result of increased production from the Fort Worth and East Texas producing basins, which has been moving eastward on CenterPoint Energy's new Carthage-to-Perryville pipeline, according to Bentek. CenterPoint flows have been averaging 1.4 Bcfd in December compared to 0.3 Bcfd last year, an increase of 1.1 Bcfd, according to the company.
