FERC has approved Enbridge’s request to place into service all project facilities at the Gillis Compressor Station located in Beauregard Parish, Louisiana, the Opelousas Compressor Station located in Saint Landry Parish, Louisiana, and the Speaks Compressor Station located in Lavaca County, Texas as part of phase 2 of the Gulf Markets Expansion Project.
The Gulf Markets Expansion Project will provide supply access solutions to meet the needs of demand growth in the power, industrial and LNG export sectors in the Gulf Coast region of Louisiana and Texas. It includes the following:
- Installation of a new compressor unit and associated facilities at the existing Opelousas Compressor Station in Louisiana and an addition of a new compressor station in Provident City, Texas
- Various compressor station and meter station modifications at seven existing compressor stations to allow for bi-directional flow
The project is expected to be completed in August 2017.
