In acknowledgment of his dedication and expertise, Joey Laborde, Entergy Louisiana gas locator, was recently recognized as 2023 Louisiana Locator of the Year.
Entergy Louisiana recently received approval from its regulator, the Louisiana Public Service Commission, to expand its gas infrastructure replacement program (GRIP) to include the replacement of vintage steel pipe.
The ongoing work helps the company manage the integrity, reliability and safety of the gas distribution system, a primary goal for Entergy's Gas Distribution Business.
When Hurricane Ida’s catastrophic and damaging winds left more than 900,000 customers without power across southeast Louisiana, Entergy Gas customers in New Orleans and Baton Rouge were able to use an alternative means to power their needs.
Entergy Louisiana and Entergy New Orleans are currently replacing hundreds of miles of cast iron, bare steel and other vintage gas pipes to modernize the companies’ gas delivery system.
