The Destin Gas Pipeline is owned and operated by American Midstream, which purchased it from BP in 2016. The pipeline's 255-mile length includes a 120-mile offshore portion that terminates at the 1.5 Bcf/d Pascagoula processing plant. The onshore portion of the pipeline extends 135 miles north in Mississippi to transport gas to eleven connected pipelines and storage facilities. Destin’s onshore pipeline serves as a large header system allowing gas from the Midcontinent, East Texas, and Terryville areas to reach markets in the Southeast.
