Sections of 20-inch pipe lay strung out along a neatly manicured right-of-way, awaiting a crew from WHC Energy Services, Lafayette, to construct the 270-mile Aegis pipeline from Texas to the Mississippi River.
The pipeline will carry 425,000 barrels a day of ethane, a natural gas liquid widely used in plasics and pharmaceuticals.

After only seven years, the air conditioning unit at the parish’s courthouse annex on St. Martin Street needs to be replaced.
At the Aug. 4 Parish Council meeting, Parish President Guy Cormier said that the unit, which began developing problems just three years after it was installed, was now out of order completely.
