Project Details

  • Owner: Loews Corporation (50%), Sempra Energy (50%)
  • Proposed capacity: 2,000 million cubic feet per day[3]
  • Length: 836.9 kilometers / 520 miles
  • Status: Shelved
  • Start Year: 2021[3]


The project will connect natural gas supplies from the Permian Basin to growing markets on the Texas Gulf Coast and Mexico. Its expected completion date was the third quarter of 2020.[1]

From 2017 to November 2019, there were no development updates and the project was presumed to be shelved. In September 2019, the pipeline was mentioned in an Energy Information Administration (EIA) report as one of "several planned natural gas pipelines". [4] However, by July 2020 the P2K Pipeline website ( was no longer active. The research company Rystad Energy noted in a survey of Permian gas prospects that the project "appears to be inactive".[5]
