Enbridge's Valley Crossing project to get environmental review by July

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission plans to publish on June 30 an environmental review for Enbridge Inc.'s proposed natural gas export pipeline that would deliver up to 2.6 Bcf/d to Mexico.

Commission staff announced on June 9 that the environmental assessment would be issued at the end of the month, leaving cooperating federal agencies until Sept. 28 to complete and submit their reviews of the border project. The project is being developed by Valley Crossing Pipeline LLC, owned by Enbridge's Spectra Energy Partners LP.

The Valley Crossing border-crossing project would deliver gas for electrical generation plants in Mexico. It would include an approximately 1,000-foot, 42-inch-diameter transmission pipeline across the U.S.-Mexico international border in Texas state waters. The project would connect Valley Crossing's system to a Mexican pipeline.

Valley Crossing filed an application for the project with FERC on Nov. 21, 2016, seeking a certificate order and a presidential permit for the pipeline. (FERC docket CP17-19)
