Rockies Express Pipeline (REX) Thursday pushed back the in-service date of interim delivery points on REX-East to the second half of June. Previously REX said service would begin in the first half of June (see Daily GPI, May 18).
REX said it anticipates commencing service on REX East to Lebanon, OH, in mid to late June. The pipeline affirmed its projection for service to Clarington, OH, on Nov. 1. Initial service to Lebanon is expected to offer capacity of 1,600 MDth/d, which is expected to increase to 1,800 MDth/d. Ultimately, 1,800 MDth/d of capacity is to be available to Clarington as well, REX said.
The final and easternmost segment of the landmark pipeline from the Rockies has been plagued by weather-related delays. One Rockies producer remarked on the latest delay: "I'd guess sometime after the Fourth of July [REX-East will be in service] at the rate they're going."
REX already is running full and other major pipeline projects are in the works to carry gas from the Rockies producing area. REX has had significant influence on basis and the North American pipeline grid and is expected to have more, according to Bentek Energy (see Daily GPI, May 21).
