Boardwalk Pipeline Partners LP said it is holding a second open season for the remaining capacity in its proposed $1.1 billion Gulf Crossing pipeline. During the previous open season, customers signed binding precedent agreements for 1 Bcf/d of the proposed 1.65 Bcf/d of total capacity. Last week Crosstex Energy said it would take 150,000 Dth/d of firm capacity on Gulf Crossing (see Daily GPI, Nov. 20). Enterprise Products Partners and Devon Energy, the largest Barnett Shale producer, recently also agreed to be foundation shippers on Gulf Crossing with 850 MMcf/d of the proposed capacity under 10-year contracts and options for an additional 350 MMcf/d (see Daily GPI, Nov. 13). The Gulf Crossing project would be a new 355 mile, 42-inch diameter interstate pipeline from the Barnett Shale plan in northeastern Texas to the Perryville Hub in North Louisiana, where it would interconnect with multiple downstream pipelines. Upstream of the project, both Crosstex and Enterprise will expand their intrastate pipelines systems. Plans also call for Gulf Crossing to lease capacity on Boardwalk subsidiary Gulf South Pipeline Co. LP to make deliveries from Perryville to Transcontinental Gas Pipe Line Corp. at Station 85 in Choctaw County, AL. Subject to regulatory approvals, the Gulf Crossing project will be in service during the fourth quarter of 2008. The open season runs through Dec. 15.
