In December 2016, FERC issued a final approval (see FERC Issues Certificates for 3 Spectra Energy Pipe Projects in M-U). Since that time Spectra/Enbridge has been busy building. Lebanon Express, which was renamed Lebanon Expansion, went into service in August. Access South and Adair Southwest are now ready to begin flowing. On Tuesday, FERC gave Tetco permission to begin partial service on the two systems, which will begin pumping (for now) 416 Mmcf/d of Marcellus/Utica gas to new markets.
