Trunkline declares that it will be able to receive, and, at the same time, Enbridge will be able to increase the volumes of natural gas being delivered to Trunkline for further transportation to natural gas markets. Trunkline proposes to relocate the Enbridge facilities located at the Kountze Compressor Station approximately 15 miles east and install and own two 12-inch hot tap assemblies on existing 24-inch Lines 100-1 and 100-2, and install a 16-inch above-grade valve that will function as the overpressure protection device and RTU.
