Entergy Louisiana LLC signed a 10-year contract with PennTex North Louisiana LLC to supply up to 25-MW of power to PennTex's Lincoln Parish plant near Arcadia starting March 2015.
"Due to Entergy's reliable service and competitive Natural Gas Pipeline Compression Service rate schedule, we elected to install electric motors for the plant's gas compression units," said Tommy Stone, senior vice president, chief engineering and operations officer at PennTex Midstream Partners. "These electric motors will significantly reduce the environmental impact of the compressor units, from both an air-quality and noise perspective."
Entergy's Louisiana utility companies provide electric service to more than one million customers and natural gas service to nearly 93,000 customers.
Entergy owns and operates power plants with approximately 30,000-MW of electric generating capacity.
