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.
Seven new compressor stations
Increased pipeline capacity of 875 million cubic feet of natural gas per day
Increasing access to domestically produced fuels

The Gulf XPress Project will provide infrastructure improvements to allow for the safe transportation of low-cost natural gas from the Appalachian Basin to markets in the south.
The project will involve the construction of seven compressor stations in Kentucky, Tennessee and Mississippi. Explore the route below.
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.
We’re here to answer your questions. For general questions you can contact us by email, but for a quicker response, please call us directly.
|A key component in maintaining the integrity of our facilities is input from all stakeholders: Indigenous communities, landowners and governments. If you have questions or concerns, please let us know.|
