Gulf South expansion project for Entergy Louisiana gets FERC certificate

Gulf South Pipeline Co. LP received a federal certificate to build a natural gas transportation project that will provide up to 133,333 Dth/d to a proposed power plant in southeast Louisiana.

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission issued the authorization for the estimated $29.7 million St. Charles Parish expansion project Oct. 6. As a condition of the certificate order, the project must be ready for service by Oct. 6, 2019. The project would provide firm gas transportation to Entergy Louisiana LLC's proposed gas-fired combined-cycle electric generating plant, the St. Charles Power Station.

The pipeline expansion project will include a new compressor station and related facilities in St. Charles Parish, La., near the intersection of Gulf South's existing Index 270 pipeline and Index 270-94 lateral. Gulf South and Entergy Louisiana entered into a precedent agreement for transportation service from interconnects with Tennessee Gas Pipeline Co. and Texas Eastern Transmission LP to a delivery point on the Index 270-94 pipeline. The project will provide Gulf South's Index 270 and Index 270-94 with pressure management to meet the required delivery pressure for the power plant.

Gulf South filed an application July 11, 2016. The project received a positive environmental review in March from FERC staff. Gulf South is a subsidiary of Boardwalk Pipelines LP. (FERC docket CP16-478)
