Enbridge recently received an order from The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission on Thursday for the permission to put the cross-border natural gas pipeline into service.
Enbridge has received permission to put the cross-border natural gas pipeline into service after the FERC provided an order on Thursday.
The 165-mile Valley Crossing pipeline begins near the Agua Dulce hub near Corpus Christi and ends under the seafloor in the Gulf of Mexico just a few miles east of the mouth of the Rio Grande. The pipeline is designed to move 2.6 bcfd of natural gas.
Texas-Tuxpan Pipeline, a project that will move natural gas from the border to the Mexican state of Veracruz is also nearing completion.
The Valley Crossing Pipeline has been mechanically complete since October and has been awaiting the Mexican pipeline’s completion, an Enbridge spokesman confirmed.
Once the Texas-Tuxpan Pipeline and The Valley Crossing Pipeline are in operation, they will deliver natural gas from Texas to power plants in Mexico's interior.
