FERC Scales Back Review of Pipe Connecting M-U Gas to Gulf Coast

In September 2018 MDN brought you the exciting news that Enable Midstream Partners had announced a plan to build a new interstate natural gas pipeline project called the Gulf Run Pipeline which will, in part, connect Marcellus/Utica gas supplies to the Gulf Coast for exporting (see New Pipeline Designed to Connect M-U Gas to Gulf Coast LNG Exports). Fast forward to this year and although the project is still alive and kicking, Enable has scaled it back.
