(1)   Transportation services provided by these pipeline systems, in whole or part, are regulated by both federal and state governmental agencies.
(2)   Services provided by the White River Hub are regulated by federal governmental agencies.
(3)   Transportation services provided by these systems are regulated in part by state governmental agencies.
(4)   Of the 7,261 miles comprising the Texas Intrastate System, we lease 240 miles from a third party.  We proportionately consolidate our undivided interests, which range from 22% to 80%, in 1,471 miles of pipeline.  Our Wilson natural gas storage facility consists of five underground salt dome natural gas storage caverns with 12.9 Bcf of usable storage capacity, four of which (comprising 6.9 Bcf of usable capacity) are held under an operating lease that expires in January 2028.  The remainder of our Texas Intrastate System is wholly owned.
(5)   The Acadian Gas System is wholly owned except for an underground salt dome natural gas storage facility held under an operating lease that expires in December 2018.
(6)   Our ownership interest in the White River Hub facility is held indirectly through our equity method investment in White River Hub, LLC (“White River Hub”).
(7)   The Fairplay Gathering System includes approximately 52 miles of pipeline held under an operating lease.
(8)   We proportionately consolidate our 80% undivided interest in the Indian Springs Gathering System. 

On a weighted-average basis, overall utilization rates for our natural gas pipelines were approximately 57.1%, 57.4% and 59.3% during the years ended December 31, 2017, 2016 and 2015, respectively.  These utilization rates represent actual natural gas volumes delivered as a percentage of our nominal delivery capacity and do not reflect firm capacity reservation agreements where capacity fees are earned whether or not the shipper actually utilizes such capacity.

The following information describes each of our principal natural gas pipelines.  With the exception of the White River Hub and certain segments of the Texas Intrastate System, we operate our natural gas pipelines and storage facilities.

§
The Texas Intrastate System is comprised of the 6,634-mile Enterprise Texas pipeline system and the 627-mile Channel pipeline system. The Texas Intrastate System gathers, transports and stores natural gas from supply basins in Texas such as the Permian Basin and Eagle Ford and Barnett Shales for redelivery to local gas distribution companies and electric generation, industrial and municipal consumers as well as to connections with other intrastate and interstate pipelines.  The Texas Intrastate System serves various commercial markets in Texas, including Corpus Christi, San Antonio/Austin, Beaumont/Orange and Houston, including the Houston Ship Channel industrial market.  The Wilson natural gas storage facility, which is an important part of the Texas Intrastate System, is comprised of a network of leased and owned underground salt dome storage caverns located in Wharton County, Texas.
