CPG receives federal approval for Cameron Access Project

Columbia Pipeline Group Inc. (CPG) and Columbia Pipeline Partners LP (together, Columbia) have received notification that the US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) has approved construction of the Cameron Access Project in southwest Louisiana by its subsidiary Columbia Gulf Transmission LLC.

The Cameron Access Project includes improvements to Columbia Gulf's existing pipeline system, as well as ancillary facilities; a new compressor station near Lake Arthur, Louisiana, and the installation of a 26-mile greenfield pipeline lateral in Cameron Parish that provides direct access to the Cameron LNG export facility. 

The project involves an investment of $310 million and includes binding precedent agreements for more than 90% of the 800 million cubic feet of new firm transportation capacity.

The project is anticipated to begin construction activity in the spring of 2016 and to be placed in service during the first quarter of 2018.
