An environmental review by Federal Energy Regulatory Commission staff found nothing wrong with a Florida Gas Transmission Co. LLC project that would upgrade facilities on its natural gas pipeline system in the South to let it provide additional gas transportation service to Entergy Louisiana LLC.
FERC staff delivered its conclusion in a Jan. 7 environmental assessment report. Florida Gas Transmission submitted a request for FERC authorization for the replacement and upgrade under the company's blanket Natural Gas Act certificate Nov. 1, 2018. The East Louisiana project is designed to deliver up to 75 MMcf/d more gas to an Entergy Louisiana delivery point in Washington Parish, La., from a receipt point on the pipeline's mainline in Mobile County, Ala.
The project, estimated to cost about $5 million, would modify a Mississippi compressor station and make changes to a mainline valve site in Louisiana. (FERC docket CP19-12)
Florida Gas Transmission and Entergy Corp.'s Entergy Louisiana entered into a gas transportation agreement for a 10-year term.
