Louisiana Deepwater Link will provide Tennessee's expanding markets in the Gulf Coast, Southeast, and Northeast regions favorable access to one of the largest and fastest growing domestic supply basins in the Gulf of Mexico. As part of the contracts, Atwater Valley Producer Group will enter into firm transportation agreements with Tennessee for up to 500,000 Dth/d of their production.
"Tennessee continues to expand its access to critical supply regions while providing liquid trading points and flexible transportation services for our customers," said Stephen C. Beasley, president of El Paso's Eastern Pipeline Group. "The Gulf of Mexico has long been a major component of our diverse supply portfolio, and this deepwater Gulf of Mexico project demonstrates our ongoing commitment to attract incremental supplies to the Tennessee system."
Tennessee will lay two pipelines from its existing Grand Isle 43 system, located on the southeast coastline of Louisiana, to a new junction platform to be built in West Delta 68 and connecting to GulfTerra Field Services, L.L.C.'s recently announced 141-mile Independence Trail Pipeline. The Independence Trail Pipeline will connect Tennessee to a major platform production hub to be located in Mississippi Canyon Block 920.
The project facilities are scheduled to be placed in service October 2006. El Paso Corporation provides natural gas and related energy products in a safe, efficient, dependable manner. The company owns North America's largest natural gas pipeline system and one of North America's largest independent natural gas producers.
