American Midstream Partners, LP (American Midstream) has announced that one of its subsidiaries has received approval from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to place the Midla Natchez pipeline into service.
Approval to construct the 55 mile, 12 in. pipeline was granted in December 2015. The pipeline extends from Winnsboro (Louisiana) to Natchez (Mississippi) with capacity to deliver 50 000 dekatherms per day.
The Midla Natchez pipeline is supported by several long term firm transportation agreements with key customers. It has three receipt points from Locust Ridge Gas Company, Columbia Gas Transmission and Tennessee Gas Pipeline. There are twelve delivery points to local distribution and manufacturing facilities including Louisiana Municipal Gas Authority, BASF Corporation and ATMOS Energy Corporation.
The project was financed with US$60 million of 3.77% senior secured notes, due 30 June 2031, that were issued by subsidiaries of American Midstream in September 2016 and are non-recourse to American Midstream.
“This US$60 million project was undertaken as a commitment to provide safe and reliable energy transportation service to our customers and to the communities we operate,” said Lynn Bourdon, President and Chief Executive Officer of American Midstream. “[It] will provide the ability to deliver new and incremental volumes to existing and future customers, developing a foundation for further growth in the region. With line fill underway, we are excited to commence service and begin deliveries to our customers in the near future.”
