Exxon-Qatar’s Golden Pass JV to Anchor Enable’s Gulf Run Pipeline

Enable Midstream Partners said an affiliate of Golden Pass LNG is the cornerstone shipper for the company’s Gulf Run Pipeline project.

Golden Pass, a joint venture between affiliates of Qatar Petroleum and ExxonMobil, said it will invest $10 billion in infrastructure to add liquification and export capabilities to its existing LNG facility in Sabine Pass, Texas, which will be served by the Gulf Run Pipeline project.

“Our agreement with Enable is a key component in securing transportation for our export facility’s natural gas supply,” said Sean Ryan, president of Golden Pass LNG. “Golden Pass looks forward to a long-term relationship with Enable as we progress with our LNG export facility.”

Following the final investment decision from Golden Pass and its 20-year cornerstone shipper commitment of 1.1 Bcf/d, Enable plans to continue advancing the project to meet the anticipated late-2022 in-service date, including filing for the required Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) approval.

The Gulf Run Pipeline will provide access to some of the most prolific natural gas producing regions in the U.S., including the Mid-Continent region and the Haynesville, Marcellus and Utica shales. The proposed new pipeline will run from northern Louisiana to the Gulf Coast, helping deliver U.S. resources to international markets with increasing demand.

Four climate-change activists from the Catholic Worker movement were arrested Monday in an attempt to shut down an Enbridge oil pipeline in north-central Minnesota.
