The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission has cleared Enbridge Inc. subsidiary Texas Eastern Transmission LP (Tetco) to start service on the Venice Extension pipeline project that would serve the Plaquemines LNG export facility under construction in Louisiana. 

The Venice Extension would expand the Tetco system with a new three-mile, 36-inch diameter pipeline in Louisiana to move nearly 1.3 Bcf/d to the Plaquemines facility. 

Enbridge is also modifying two existing compressor stations in Iberville and Lafourche Parishes, where it will build two new compressor stations in addition to another new compressor facility in Pointe Coupee Parish.
