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 July 2017, Gulf XPress received its final Environmental Impact Statement from the U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), a major milestone in the FERC approval process. The Project needs approvals from other agencies before FERC can issue a final certificate authorizing construction.
