Brief -- SW Gas Paiute Pipeline

FERC on Thursday approved Las Vegas, NV-based Southwest Gas Corp.'s Paiute Pipeline Co. to put in service its new 35.2-mile, eight-inch diameter natural gas pipeline lateral in Elko, NV, with new interconnections to the interstate Ruby Pipeline LLC, running from Wyoming to the Oregon-California border. Paiute asked the federal regulators on Tuesday for approval and it was granted based on a Dec. 15 inspection and supplemental photo documentation regarding right-of-way restoration. Paiute built and will operate the line as part of it $35.2 million Elko Area Expansion Project for which the U.S. Bureau of Land Management approved the pipeline right-of-way earlier this year (see Daily GPI, Dec. 15, 2015).
