Texas Eastern's Stratton Ridge project passes environmental review

A natural gas expansion project by Texas Eastern Transmission LP and Brazoria Interconnector Gas Pipeline LLC that would deliver up to 322,000 Dth/d of gas to Gulf Coast markets received a positive environmental review from federal regulators.

Staff in the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission's Office of Energy Projects issued the review under the National Environmental Policy Act on Oct. 5. The staff concluded that commission approval of the Stratton Ridge expansion project, with appropriate mitigating measures, would not significantly affect the environment.

The project would provide firm bidirectional transportation of gas from Texas Eastern's interconnections to a delivery point on the BIG Pipeline system in Brazoria County, Texas.

The project would include construction of the 12,500-horsepower Angleton compressor station at a site owned by Texas Eastern in Brazoria County and a new 0.5-mile-long lateral connecting the compressor station to the BIG pipeline system. The project would also include modifications at compressor stations in Shelby, Chambers, San Jacinto, Waller and Lavaca counties in Texas.

Texas Eastern, a subsidiary of Enbridge Inc.'s Spectra Energy Partners LP, and BIG Pipeline estimated in their application that the project would cost approximately $99.6 million. (FERC dockets CP17-56, CP17-57)
