Access South Project

Texas Eastern’s Access South Project provides shippers with the opportunity to deliver new natural gas supplies from the Appalachian region to markets in the Southeast United States.

Texas Eastern is uniquely positioned to access these abundant supplies of clean burning, domestic natural gas and move them to markets where demand is high.

The facilities required for the Access South Project are located within Texas Eastern's current footprint, minimizing impacts to landowners, communities and the environment.
