The Stratton Ridge Pipeline project entered into a purchase and sales agreement with ConocoPhillips to aquire 100% interests in the Brazoria Interconnector Gas Pipeline, LLC (BIG), which owns the BIG Pipeline. The BIG Pipeline is a 42-inch natural gas pipeline in Brazoria County, Texas, with a capacity of approximately 1.8 billion cubic feet per day. It extends 30.5 miles between Stratton Ridge on its south end to a point near Iowa Colony in northern Brazoria County.[3]

The BIG Pipeline will be a component of the Stratton Ridge Pipeline, an expansion project of the Texas Eastern Transmission pipeline system to deliver up to 400,000 dekatherms per day of natural gas to Stratton Ridge, Texas. The Stratton Ridge Project, including the BIG Pipeline acquisition, has an expected capital expenditure of approximately $200 million. It came in service the first quarter of 2019.[3]

According to the U.S.'s Energy Information Administration (EIA), the pipeline began operations in 2019, feeding LNG to the Freeport LNG Terminal.[2]
