Vector Project Arrives at NEB

IPL Energy and MCN Energy took the last major regulatory step in advancing their 1 Bcf/d Vector Pipeline project last week, filing an application with Canada's National Energy Board for authorization to construct the 16-mile Ontario portion of the 342-mile line. An application for the larger U.S. portion was filed with FERC in December.

The $500-million project would interconnect with Alliance, in which IPL is a partner, and with Northern Border at Joliet, IL, bringing Canadian gas from the Chicago hub through Indiana and Michigan to the international border at the St. Clair River in northern Michigan. The Ontario portion would end at the Dawn hub.

Vector said it hopes to have the pipeline, both the U.S. and Canadian legs, in service by Nov. 1, 1999. Ontario-based IPL also has an unspecified interest in the Millennium Pipeline, a $650-million gas line, which, if approved by FERC, would extend from Lake Erie to New York City.
