South LA company secures agreement to transport natural gas
ST. James Parish — South Louisiana Methanol (SLM) CEO Barry Williamson announced Monday that the company has entered into an agreement with Transcontinental Gas Pipe Line Company to transport a significant amount of SLM’s natural gas requirements to the SLM facility.
“This agreement is a crucial step on the road to building North America’s largest methanol plant,” Williamson said. “The Transco pipeline will enable SLM to import natural gas to our plant in St. James Parish, where Louisiana workers will convert it into the methanol that is essential to American manufacturing.”
The 10-year agreement stipulates that Transco will construct infrastructure and provide firm transportation from Transco’s Station 65 (Zone 3 pool) to the SLM facility
The Transco pipeline system stretches from South Texas to New York City and is a major provider of natural gas to the northeastern and southeastern states.
South Louisiana Methanol LP is a gas-to-methanol project owned by the Todd Corporation and ZEEP Incorporated.
