In June 2015 Gulf South Pipeline applied to FERC to build the Coastal Bend Header Pipeline in Wharton and Brazoria Counties, TX. Gulf South received FERC approval in Jun 2016, and began construction of the pipeline in April 2017. The project would include seven new interconnects with various interstate and intrastate pipelines, including the Gulf South Pipeline. Gulf South Pipeline estimated the construction costs of the pipeline to be approximately US$690 million.
In May of 2018, the Coastal Bend Header gas pipeline was put into service. The first phase delivered 0.7 billion cubic feet (bcf) of natural gas per day to the Freeport LNG Terminal export facility. The second phase, completed in November of 2018, will deliver an additional 0.7 bcf.
