Enable Midstream Partners reached a 228,000 Dth/d firm transportation service agreement with Oklahoma Gas and Electric (OG&E) on the Enable Oklahoma Intrastate Transmission system. As a result, Enable will build 77 miles of 20-inch pipeline and associated metering facilities.
The 20-year contract, expected to begin in late 2018, will support OG&E’s planned conversion of two 500 megawatt coal-fired generating units to natural gas.
“This new agreement demonstrates the strength of our integrated pipeline and storage system that can respond quickly to the fuel needs of electric utility customers,” said Enable Midstream President and CEO Rod Sailor. “It also increases our significant firm, fee-based business with high-quality customers.”
In addition, Enable extended two service agreements with other large power-generating customers: one on Enable Gas Transmission for 126,000 Dth/d of enhanced firm service for four additional years and another on EOIT for 305,000 Dth/d of firm service for an additional year.
