Segments Intrastate Transportation and Storage segment This segment owns and operates approximately 7,500 miles of natural gas transportation pipelines with approximately 14.1 billion cubic feet (Bcf) per day (/d) of transportation capacity and three natural gas storage facilities located in the state of Texas. The company, through La Grange Acquisition, L.P., which conducts business under the assumed name of Energy Transfer Company, owns the major intrastate pipeline system in the United States with interconnects to Texas markets and to major consumption areas throughout the United States. This segment focuses on the transportation of natural gas to major markets from various prolific natural gas producing areas through connections with other pipeline systems, as well as through the company’s Oasis pipeline, East Texas pipeline, natural gas pipeline and storage assets that are referred to as the ET Fuel System; and the company’s HPL System. The company also generates revenues and margin from the sale of natural gas to electric utilities, independent power plants, local distribution companies, industrial end-users and marketing companies on its HPL System. The ET Fuel System serves some of the most prolific production areas in the United States and includes intrastate natural gas pipeline and related natural gas storage facilities. The ET Fuel System has many interconnections with pipelines providing direct access to power plants, other intrastate and interstate pipelines, and is located near high-growth production areas and provides access to the Waha Hub near Midland, Texas, the Katy Hub near Houston, Texas and the Carthage Hub in East Texas, the three major natural gas trading centers in Texas. The ET Fuel System also includes the company’s Bethel natural gas storage facility, with a working capacity of 6.4 Bcf, an average withdrawal capacity of 300 MMcf (million cubic feet)/d and an injection capacity of 75 MMcf/d; and the company’s Bryson natural gas storage facility, with a working capacity of 6.0 Bcf, an average withdrawal capacity of 120 MMcf/d and an average injection capacity of 96 MMcf/d. All of the company’s storage capacity on the ET Fuel System is contracted to third parties under fee-based arrangements that extend through 2017. In addition, the ET Fuel System is integrated with the company’s Godley processing plant, which gives the company the ability to bypass the plant when processing margins are unfavorable by blending the untreated natural gas from the North Texas System with natural gas on the ET Fuel System. The Oasis pipeline is primarily a 36-inch natural gas pipeline. It has bi-directional capability with approximately 1.2 Bcf/d of throughput capacity moving west-to-east and approximately 750 MMcf/d of throughput capacity moving east-to-west. The Oasis pipeline has many interconnections with other pipelines, power plants, processing facilities, municipalities and producers. The Oasis pipeline is integrated with the company’s Southeast Texas System and is a primary component to improving the company’s Southeast Texas System’s profitability. The Oasis pipeline improves the Southeast Texas System by providing access for natural gas on the Southeast Texas System to other third party supply and market points and interconnecting pipelines; and allowing the company to bypass its processing plants and treating facilities on the Southeast Texas System when processing margins are unfavorable by blending untreated natural gas from the Southeast Texas System with gas on the Oasis pipeline. The HPL System is a network of intrastate natural gas pipelines, an underground Bammel storage reservoir and related transportation assets. The system has access to multiple sources of historically significant natural gas supply reserves from South Texas, the Gulf Coast of Texas, East Texas and the western Gulf of Mexico; and is directly connected to major gas distribution, electric and industria
