As one of the largest gas transporters in the Gulf of Mexico, Enbridge handles approximately 43% of total offshore natural gas production and 54% of deepwater natural gas production. With demands increasing due to new developments in the deepwater areas, Enbridge Offshore Pipelines is planning several major new growth projects.
Enbridge Offshore Pipelines consists of 11 active natural gas gathering and FERC-regulated transmission pipelines, and two active oil pipelines, that collectively span more than 1,200 miles and travel through four major corridors in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico, extending to deepwater developments.
We anticipate the completion of the second phase of the Walker Ridge Gas Gathering System, as well as Big Foot Oil Pipeline, to go into service in the next year. Looking ahead, we expect the Stampede Oil Pipeline to be operational by 2018.
