Enbridge Conducts Open Season for Large-Diameter Pipeline from SE Texas to Mississippi

Enbridge Inc. announced last Wednesday it will conduct a nonbinding open season for a proposed 330-mile long, 36-inch diameter natural gas transmission pipeline that would be designed to transport up to 1 Bcf/d of natural gas from Southeast Texas to Clarke County, MS.

Enbridge is seeking "expressions of interest" from potential shippers for this proposed pipeline system as well as to determine the optimal route and size of the proposed pipeline system and to identify receipt and delivery points/pipeline interconnections that shippers would want to use. Such expressions of interest should be provided to Enbridge on the form found online at www.enbridgegasproject.com on or before March 10.

The proposed route for this Texas-to-Mississippi pipeline is along a corridor that would offer market diversity for South Texas and Gulf of Mexico natural gas production, as well as delivery points for various proposed liquefied natural gas regasification facilities to be located in Southwest Louisiana and Southeast Texas. A map of the proposed route is available on the company's website.

This proposed pipeline system would provide access to interstate and intrastate natural gas transmission pipeline systems located throughout Louisiana and into Mississippi, including: Columbia Gulf Transmission, Gulf South Pipeline, Florida Gas Transmission, Transcontinental Gas Pipeline, and Destin Pipeline. The exact location and size of potential receipt and delivery points/pipeline interconnections will be determined by customer interest and market demand. Enbridge said potential shippers should indicate their interest in any additional pipeline interconnections. The anticipated in-service date of the proposed pipeline system is the first quarter of 2009.

Commercial inquiries or requests for additional information should be directed to: Paul Kelly or David Halphen at (713) 821-2283 or (832) 214-5726, or by e-mail: paul.kelly@enbridge.com or david.halphen@enbridge.com.
