Gulf XPress Project

Natural Gas Icon


The Gulf XPress Project, a network of seven new compressor stations in Kentucky, Tennessee and Mississippi, will greatly broaden the reach of low-cost, U.S.-produced natural gas from the Appalachian Basin. Once completed, access to this domestic fuel source will help keep costs down for families and businesses in the region, while increasing reliability and access. The project will also create many new, well-paying jobs for workers in all three states.

In December 2017, Gulf XPress received its certificate of public convenience and necessity from the U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) authorizing construction to proceed.

Frequently Asked Questions

Before building any new piece of infrastructure, our project teams conduct surveys to ensure facilities are designed and built in a way that protects and minimizes impacts to the natural environment and significant cultural and Indigenous sites.

Typically, our survey teams consist of small crews of technical surveyors, engineers, biologists and archaeologists. Please note that all of our employees and vendors carry proper ID and will present their credentials if asked.

Compressor stations re-pressurize natural gas to help it flow more efficiently. Watch this video for the inside story.
