Tennessee Begins Open Season for Planned Line 100, Carthage Lateral Expansion

El Paso Corp. subsidiary Tennessee Gas Pipeline last Tuesday began a nonbinding open season for capacity on a proposed expansion of its Line 100 mainline and Carthage lateral in Texas and Louisiana.

The open season will end on March 31. The expansion is designed to provide incremental capacity on Tennessee's Carthage lateral in Texas, as well as to provide additional access to supplies from Texas and northern Louisiana through Tennessee's Line 100 mainline.

The pipeline's Carthage lateral in Panola County, TX, and DeSoto Parish, LA, currently is operating at maximum capacity, and Tennessee has received a number of inquiries about its ability to expand the capacity of this lateral, the company said. In addition, the portion of Tennessee's Line 100 that runs through Texas and northern Louisiana is fully subscribed and experiencing high-customer utilization, it noted.

The final scope of the expansion project will depend upon the customer response to the open season, according to Tennessee. It anticipates that the expansion will begin service in the second quarter of 2006.
