Algonquin Holds HubLine Open Season

Duke Energy's Algonquin Gas Transmission announced an open season for its proposed HubLine Pipeline The open season to accept capacity requests began July 20 and concludes on Aug. 12. Service for HubLine, which is designed for 600,000 Dth/d, is expected to commence in 2002 and nominations for services starting at different periods will be accepted and evaluated.

The $300 million, 70-mile HubLine project would extend from a connection with the Joint Facilities line in Plaistow, NH, in a southeasterly direction for about 34 miles to the coast and then travel under water along the eastern seaboard for about 24 miles to interconnect with existing Algonquin facilities. Shippers would have access to Sable Island gas through Maritimes, domestic supply through Algonquin's existing system and possibly LNG from Algonquin's liquefaction facilities near Boston.

"The recent electric power peak demand throughout the Northeast demonstrates the need for additional clean and efficient gas-fired generation in the Northeast. HubLine offers a unique opportunity to bring new high pressure gas supplies deep into the market increasing operating efficiencies and flexibility," said Tom O'Connor, vice president of marketing for Duke Energy's Northeast Pipelines. For more information about the HubLine open season call John Sheridan at (617) 560-1444.
