Enbridge Inc. is holding a binding open season through Nov. 23 for its proposed LaCrosse Pipeline, which is intended to transport gas from Carthage, TX, to multiple delivery points in southeastern Louisiana. Construction of the 340-mile LaCrosse would occur in two phases. In Phase I Enbridge would construct and place in service the 42- and 36-inch diameter pipeline segments from the Enbridge Carthage Hub to Point Coupee Parish, LA, and a 24-inch diameter segment from Point Coupee Parish to Petrologistics LLC’s Choctaw Storage facility in Iberville Parish, LA. In Phase II Enbridge would construct and place in service the segment from Point Coupee Parish to an interconnection with Southern Natural Gas Co. in Washington Parish, LA. The planned in-service dates would be phased starting January 2012 through March 2013, Enbridge said. “We are in the process of negotiating third-party agreements that will bring total capacity commitments to exceed 1 Bcf/d and have additional indications of interest that could exceed 1.3 Bcf/d,” said Enbridge Energy Co. Inc. President Terrance L. McGill. “We have also secured engineering and environmental firms and survey permission from more than 80% of affected landowners. We are moving forward to initiate regulatory approvals including application to [the] U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), and expect to place Phase 1 of the LaCrosse Pipeline in service during the first quarter of 2012.” Information is available at www.lacrosse.enbridgeus.com under “Shipper Documents.”

Calgary-based AltaGas is acquiring a 90% working interest in the 30 MMcf/d Cygnet-Prevo natural gas plant and associated 100-kilometer gathering system located near Red Deer, AB. Current throughput at the plant is 18 MMcf/d, and the facilities will be operated as part of AltaGas’ existing Bonnie Glen complex. With the acquisition and current activities, the midstream independent’s total gross processing capability in the Bonnie Glen area will be 80 MMcf/d. Closing is expected before July 31. According to the company, the Cygnet-Prevo system lies in a successful multi-zone producing region of the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin. The gathering system encompasses about nine townships (83,915 square hectares), making it “well positioned to capture additional development in this area.”
