Gulf Run Pipeline gets the go-ahead from FERC


Enable Midstream Partners has approval from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to develop and operate the Gulf Run Pipeline project in Louisiana.

The $540 million pipeline project is designed to transport natural gas from some of the most prolific natural gas-producing reservoirs in the United States, including the Haynesville, Marcellus, Utica and Barnett shales as well as the Mid-Continent region.

Enable’s pipeline project is backed by a 20-year commitment for 1.1 billion cubic feet per day (Bcf/d) from cornerstone shipper Golden Pass LNG, which is being developed off the coast of Texas. Golden Pass LNG is a joint venture between subsidiaries of Exxon Mobil Corporation and Qatar Petroleum.

The project comprises 134 miles of new pipelines and other facilities. It is expected to provide transportation services from the partnership’s existing Westdale compressor in Red River Parish to an interconnect with the Golden Pass Pipeline near Starks.

The 42-inch pipeline is expected to be operational in late 2022.
