San Antonio’s Mirage Energy Corp. has a new interconnect agreement to bring more from the Permian Basin natural gas to Mexico.
Mirage’s wholly-owned WPF Transmission Inc. signed the deal this week with Whistler Pipeline LLC to interconnect the Agua Dulce/Banquet header into WPF’s 42″ Concho line down to the US-Mexico border then connecting into the WPF Mexico Pipelines to join Mexico’s national pipeline system (Sistran), with 42″ pipeline all the way.
The final interconnection will be at Los Ramones, Mexico, the company said, with an additional interconnection at the Brazil Field Storage Project, giving Mexico the ability to pull from storage to balance shortages and peaks.
According to New York City-based Stonepeak Infrastructure Partners, the Whistler Pipeline is a 2.0 Bcf/d, 42” long distance natural gas pipeline from West Texas to the Gulf Coast constructed to provide relief to Permian Basin natural gas takeaway constraints.
The project includes Stonepeak, “partnered with West Texas Gas, Inc. – the largest private gas processor in the Permian Basin, based in Midland – to jointly fund and operate an interest in the Whistler Project with MPLX LP Of Findlay, Ohio and Austin-based WhiteWater Midstream, LLC.”
