Mississippi River Transmission is operated by Enable Mississippi River Transmission LLC, a subsidiary of Enable Midstream Partners. Its primary delivery points are to local distribution companies and industrial markets in the St. Louis, Missouri area.[2]

According to a 2017 filing with FERC, Mississippi River Transmission "provides St. Louis, Missouri with gas supplies from east Texas, Oklahoma, and Louisiana including the Haynesville, Fayetteville, and SCOOP (South Central Oklahoma Oil Province) and STACK (Sooner Trend Anadarko Basin Canadian and Kingfisher Counties) shales as well as production from the Gulf Coast and Northeast Marcellus/Utica plays . . . MRT’s Main Line facilities were looped and compression was added periodically, for instance in 1947, 1957 and 1976, to increase capacity to the St. Louis area."[3]
