Enterprise Products Partners LP (EPP) has started commercial service on its 1-bcfd Gillis Lateral pipeline and the associated expansion of its existing Acadian Haynesville Extension to serve the LNG market on the US Gulf Coast. The 80-mile Gillis Lateral originates near Alexandria, La., on Enterprise’s Acadian Haynesville Extension, and extends to third-party pipeline interconnects near Gillis, La., including multiple pipelines serving LNG liquefaction plants.
To accommodate the additional volumes, EPP increased capacity on its Acadian Haynesville Extension to 2.1 bcfd from 1.8 bcfd by increasing horsepower at its Mansfield compressor station in DeSoto Parish, La.
The legacy Acadian and Haynesville Extension pipelines are part of the Acadian Gas Pipeline system, comprised of about 1,300 miles of natural gas pipelines and leased underground storage. It links natural gas supplies in Louisiana and offshore Gulf of Mexico to distribution companies, electric power plants, and industrial customers in the Baton Rouge-New Orleans-Mississippi River corridor.
EPP’s 378-mile, 1.3 bcfd Haynesville gathering system can treat as much as 810 MMcfd and supplies the Acadian system.
