Millennium Proposes System Expansion in New York

Millennium Pipeline Co. LLC has filed an application seeking authorization from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to expand its system by 225,000 Dth/d in New York.

The pipeline has proposed the construction of a compressor station, the Minisink Compressor Project, and related facilities in the Town of Minisink in Orange County, NY, which would increase firm deliveries to its interconnection with Algonquin Gas Transmission LLC at Rampo, NY, to 675,000 Dth/d. The project also will permit bidirectional gas flows on Millennium's system between its existing compressor station at Corning, NY, and the proposed Minisink station.

Millennium has called on the Commission to issue a certificate by Feb. 1, 2012 so it can have the compressor station in service by Nov. 1, 2012.

The proposed compressor station, which Millennium estimates will cost $43.6 million, will consist of two 6,130 hp natural gas-powered turbines, minimal suction and discharge pipeline and associated facilities, the pipeline said.

Millennium said the project is fully supported by precedent agreements for long-term firm transportation, at negotiated rates, with two anchor shippers and one additional shipper.
