Safety Within the Community
Our goal is to provide safe and beneficial underground natural gas service to the communities we cross and the customers we serve.
The Comanche Trail Pipeline is a Texas intrastate pipeline designed to transport 1.1 billion cubic feet per day of clean-burning natural gas as part of an agreement with Comisión Federal de Electricidad, Mexico's federal electricity commission. The Comanche Trail Pipeline went into service as scheduled on January 30, 2017.
Texas-based Energy Transfer Partners is responsible for the construction and operation of the 195-mile, 42-inch diameter pipeline which originates at the Waha Hub outside Fort Stockton, Texas in northern Pecos County and terminates custody at the U.S.-Mexico boundary in San Elizario, Texas - just south of El Paso. The pipeline presently includes seven delivery taps along the route in West Texas for local economic development opportunities.
The Comanche Trail Pipeline provides new market outlets for domestically produced clean-burning natural gas, thereby encouraging continued production in the U.S. energy sector.
Approximate Mileage Per County:
Pecos: 0.19 miles Reeves: 59 miles Culberson: 51 miles
Hudspeth: 65 miles El Paso: 17 miles
Prior to construction, the Comanche Trail Pipeline completed surveys of the area as part of its process to identify the desired route that enables safe and reliable transmission infrastructure. To accomplish this, we performed civil, archaeological, environmental, and endangered species surveys.
