Project Details

  • Owner: Enable Midstream Partners[1]
  • Proposed capacity: 1,650 million cubic feet per day[3]
  • Length: 134 miles / 215.7 kilometers[3]
  • Cost: US$540 million[4]
  • Status: Proposed[3]
  • Start Year: 2023[3]


Enable Midstream Partners is proposing to build a new interstate natural gas transmission pipeline in Louisiana and modify its existing assets. The new, 170-mile pipeline would run from Westdale to the Starks and Gillis areas. The modifications to Line CP will enhance and repurpose some of Enable’s existing, under-utilized infrastructure in northern Louisiana. The project represents at least a $500 million investment and will provide a direct connection from the Haynesville Shale to the Gulf Coast. The project initiated the Federal Energy Regulatory Committee (FERC) pre-filing review process in April 2019. Pending receipt of applicable permits and regulatory approvals, construction would begin by 2022. The anticipated completion date is 2022.[1]

In February 2020, Enable Midstream filed an amended application to build the pipeline with less capacity, after which FERC scaled back its planned review of the project from an environmental impact statement to an environmental assessment.[5]

In June 2021, Enable received FERC approval to construct and operate the pipeline project. It will partly serve the Golden Pass LNG Terminal being built by ExxonMobil and Qatar Petroleum on the Texas coast. A 20 year supply commitment for 1.1 Bcf/d of gas is in place with Golden Pass.[4]
