HOUSTON, Aug. 25 -- Enbridge Energy Partners LP, Calgary, and Atmos Pipeline & Storage LLC, Dallas, issued a solicitation of interest Aug. 25 for firm transportation service on a proposed 100-mile, 1 bcfd natural gas pipeline in Texas called the Barnett Intrastate Gas (BIG) pipeline.

The BIG pipeline would connect Atmos Energy's Line X in Johnson County, Tex., to Enbridge's Double D and Clarity pipelines at Bethel in Anderson County, Tex.

"Delivery points would include multiple market options at the Enbridge Carthage Hub in Panola County, Tex., and the Enbridge Southeast Texas Hub in Orange County," Enbridge said.

The line would have interconnections on the pipeline systems of Natural Gas Pipe Line, Texas Gas Transmission, Gulf South Pipeline Co., Tennessee Gas Transmission, CenterPoint Energy, Texas Eastern Transmission Corp., Entergy Corp., Kinder Morgan, Gulf South Pipeline Co., Trunkline, and Florida Gas Transmission.

The solicitation will close on Sept. 17.
