SAN ANTONIO – June 23, 2015 - 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. READ MORE
