Tennessee Gas Pipeline announces Louisiana deepwater link project

The Louisiana Deepwater Link will provide an additional 850,000 dekatherms per day (Dth/d) of capacity associated with GulfTerra Field Services’ recently-announced Independence Trail pipeline project. GulfTerra Field Services is an affiliate of Enterprise Products Partners, and the Louisiana Deepwater Link will provide Tennessee’s expanding markets in the Gulf Coast, SE, and NE regions access to one of the largest and fastest-growing US domestic supply basins in the Gulf of Mexico. As part of the contract, the Atwater Valley Producer Group will enter into firm transportation agreements with Tennessee for up to 500,000Dth/d of their production.

Tennessee will lay two pipelines from its existing Grand Isle 43 system, located on the SE coastline of Louisiana, to a new junction platform to be built in West Delta 68 and connecting to GulfTerra Field Services’ recently-announced 225-km long Independence Trail pipeline. The new pipeline will connect Tennessee to a major platform production hub to be located in Mississippi Canyon Block 920, and the project facilities are scheduled to be placed in service in October, 2006.
