Our Midla system is a 1920's vintage, interstate natural-gas pipeline with approximately 370 miles of pipeline linking the Monroe Natural Gas Field in northern Louisiana and interconnections with the Transco Pipeline system and Gulf South Pipeline system to customers near Baton Rouge, Louisiana.The mainline has a current capacity of approximately 198 MMcf/d and consists of approximately 170 miles of low-pressure, 22-inch-diameter pipeline with laterals ranging in diameter from two to 16 inches.
Our MLGT system is an intrastate natural-gas transmission system that sources natural gas from interconnects with the FGT Pipeline system, the Tetco Pipeline system, the Transco Pipeline system, and our Midla system to a Baton Rouge, Louisiana refinery owned and operated by ExxonMobil and several other industrial customers. Our MLGT system has a capacity of approximately 170 MMcf/d and is comprised of approximately 54 miles of pipeline with diameters ranging from three to fourteen inches. The MLGT system is connected to seven receipt and seventeen delivery points.
In December 2014, American Midstream Partners, LP, owner of the Midla pipeline reached an uncontested agreement with all interested parties regarding its Midla interstate pipeline. The parties involved reached an agreement to provide continued service to Midla’s customers while addressing safety concerns with the existing pipeline.
Midla and the parties agreed that Midla may retire the existing mainline and replace the existing natural-gas service with a new pipeline from Winnsboro, Louisiana, to Natchez, Mississippi (the “Midla-Natchez pipeline”) to serve existing residential, commercial, and industrial customers. Customers not served by the new Midla-Natchez pipeline would be connected to other interstate or intrastate pipelines or other gas-distribution systems, or they would be offered conversion to propane service. Further, portions of the northern and southern portions of the Midla system would be transferred to MLGT, which would continue to operate. The agreement is subject to final approval from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC).
