Background

LIG, which is one of the largest intrastate pipelines in the state of Louisiana, consists of approximately 2000 miles of gas gathering and transmission systems located in 29 parishes extending from northwest and north-central Louisiana through the center of the state to south and southeast Louisiana. Current on-system market of approximately 580,000 mmbtu/d includes power plants, municipal gas systems, and industrial markets located principally in the industrial corridor between New Orleans and Baton Rouge. Processing plants owned by LIG give the system the capability to handle rich and lean gas supplies connected to the system. Connections to several interconnected pipelines and the Jefferson Island Storage facility provide access to additional system supply. [2]
