Summit Midstream Partners has announced that Double E Pipeline received its ‘notice to proceed with construction’, as well as approval of its implementation plan, from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC).
“We are pleased to report the actions of the FERC and the BLM and also re-affirm our expected Q4 2021 in-service date,” said president, CEO and chairman Heath Deneke.
He added: “Summit has also made good progress on its financing plans related to its 70 percent share of Double E and intends to announce additional details prior to construction activities beginning later this quarter.”
Double E, a joint venture in which SMLP owns a 70 percent equity interest and serves as the pipeline’s operator and construction manager, has also been granted the necessary rights-of-way on federal lands from the Department of the Interior’s Bureau of Land Management and has entered into Memorandums of Agreement regarding treatment and mitigation measures at certain cultural resource sites with the FERC and the State Historic Preservation Officers of New Mexico and Texas.
Double E wants to build the 135-mile (217-km) pipeline to transport about 1.35 billion cubic feet per day of gas from the Delaware Basin in the Permian Shale in New Mexico and Texas to the Waha Hub in West Texas.
