Double E Pipeline Summit Midstream Logo

Quick Facts:

Proposed Project: New interstate natural gas pipeline to deliver approximately 1.3 Bcf/d of natural gas from the northern Delaware Basin in Eddy and Lea Counties, New Mexico to the Waha Hub in Pecos County, Texas
Length: 117 miles
Operator: To be constructed and operated by Summit Permian Transmission, LLC

Project Overview:

The Double E Pipeline (“Project”) will provide natural gas transportation service from the Delaware Basin to the Waha Hub, connecting a growing associated natural gas supply basin to a liquid trading point with multiple current and planned takeaway pipelines serving demand centers along the United States Gulf Coast and Mexico.

The Project will consist of an approximately 117 miles of 30” to 42” diameter pipeline with a capacity of approximately 1.3 Bcf/d (without compression), expandable to 1.8 Bcf/d (with compression). It will originate in the northern Delaware Basin in Eddy County, New Mexico and terminate at the Waha Hub in Pecos County, Texas, servicing portions of Eddy County in New Mexico and Loving, Ward, Pecos and Reeves counties in Texas. The Project will have multiple direct downstream pipeline connections. Additional receipt laterals and extensions are being contemplated. The Project is expected to be placed into service during the second quarter of 2021.

Project Benefits:

  • The Project will connect a growing associated natural gas supply basin to a liquid trading point with multiple current and planned takeaway pipelines serving demand centers along the United States Gulf Coast and Mexico.
  • The clean burning natural gas that will be transported through the Project will help reduce emissions and related impacts.
  • The Project will stimulate local economics and generate meaningful long term tax revenues to counties along the Project route.

The Permitting Process:

Summit will work closely with the Federal Bureau of Land Management, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, Texas and New Mexico environmental agencies, and other federal, state, and local stakeholders to secure all necessary permits for construction and operation of the Project.

Because the Project is an interstate natural gas pipeline project, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission will have jurisdiction over its construction.

Safety:

Summit is dedicated to maintaining the quality and integrity of our pipeline systems to maintain public safety and minimize environmental impact.

  • Pipelines are monitored through aerial and ground surveillance to verify the integrity of the pipeline.
  • Pipelines are monitored 24 hours a day via Summit’s Operations Control Center.
  • Summit has developed a comprehensive Integrity Management Program in accordance with State and Federal regulations in order to maintain the safety, reliability and integrity of our pipelines.
