Enbridge Holds Open Season For Proposed Interstate Pipeline

June 2009 Vol. 236 No. 6

Enbridge Inc. recently completed a non-binding open season for the proposed LaCrosse Pipeline, an interstate pipeline to transport natural gas from Carthage, TX to Washington Parish in Southeastern Louisiana.

The 300-mile pipeline would have a capacity of at least 1 Bcf/d and is designed to provide an outlet for increasing supplies of natural gas originating in the East Texas and Fort Worth producing basins and the growing Haynesville Shale. The pipeline would interconnect with pipelines in the Perryville area as well as Louisiana industrial markets and pipelines serving southeastern U.S. markets.

Enbridge expects the proposed project to be completed in late 2011 or early 2012.
