Pipeline Expansion In Cameron To Serve LNG Exporter
CAMERON, La. (AP) — An Oklahoma company plans to expand a pipeline to supply natural gas to Cheniere Energy Partners' Sabine Pass liquefied natural gas plant in Cameron Parish.
The Advocate reports that Tulsa-based Williams Partners and its subsidiary Transcontinental Gas Pipe Line Co. will spend around $300 million on the project.
The Gulf Trace expansion will add 1.2 billion cubic feet of natural gas to the pipeline’s daily capacity. The expansion will allow Williams to serve its existing customers and Cheniere at the same time. The project includes a new 8-mile, 36-inch pipeline and two new compressor stations to send gas to Sabine Pass. The project is expected to be completed in early 2017.
