Enable Midstream Partners said its unit, Enable Gulf Run Transmission, will develop the Gulf Run Pipeline, an interstate natural gas transportation project connecting U.S. natural gas supplies to LNG export markets on the Gulf Coast.
The project is backed by a precedent agreement with a cornerstone shipper for a 20-year, 1.1 billion cubic feet per day of capacity firm transportation service.
Subject to a final investment decision by the cornerstone shipper for the LNG export facility to be served by this project and approval of the project by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, up to an estimated 165 miles of large-diameter pipeline will be constructed from northern Louisiana to Gulf Coast markets.
In addition, the Gulf Run Pipeline project will utilize existing Enable Gas Transmission transportation infrastructure to provide access to natural gas producing regions in the U.S., including the Haynesville, Marcellus, Utica and Barnett shales as well as the Mid-Continent region.
The project is expected to be placed into service in 2022.
Enable Midstream Partners noted a non-binding open season for the Gulf Run Pipeline project started and will continue through October 26, 2018, to gather additional interest for firm transportation capacity.
