Point Comfort Pipeline was a proposed pipeline associated with the Calhoun LNG Terminal in Point Comfort, Texas, USA.[1] The LNG terminal and associated pipeline were cancelled in February 2013.[2]


The pipeline would have connected the Calhoun LNG Terminal with various existing pipelines in Texas. The final connection would have been with a Tennessee Gas pipeline, three miles southwest of Edna in Jackson County, Texas, USA.[1]
