The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission has approved Port Arthur Pipeline LLC’s (PAPLC) planned Port Arthur Pipeline Louisiana Connector Project for pre-filing review [PF17-5]. The project would entail construction of 135 miles of 42-inch diameter natural gas pipeline; up to eight interconnects; receipt meter stations; and appurtenances in Evangeline, Allen, Beauregard, Calcasieu, and Cameron parishes in Louisiana and in Jefferson County, TX. PAPLC also plans to construct a compressor station in Allen Parish, LA. The project would transport up to 2.0 Bcf/d of additional feed gas to the Port Arthur Liquefaction Project, which is being developed by Port Arthur LNG LLC and PALNG Common Facilities Co. LLC. PAPLC is expected to file an application for the pipeline project by October.
