TriState Project Filed with NEB

TriState Project Filed with NEB

Westcoast Energy said its subsidiary St. Clair Pipelines submitted an application to Canada's National Energy Board for construction of the Canadian portion of the TriState Pipeline Project. The project would provide 450 MMcf/d of new firm transportation capacity from the Chicago Hub through Indiana and Michigan to the Dawn Hub in Ontario. Project partner CMS Energy filed an application for the U.S. portion in November of last year. Westcoast has a 33.3% stake in TriState.

"TriState will provide expandable service, based on demand, between the growing Chicago Hub near Joliet, IL, and the Union Gas storage and transportation facilities at Dawn," said Michael Stewart, executive vice president of business development for Westcoast. "From the Dawn Hub, shippers will have access to multiple downstream delivery opportunities, including the proposed Millennium West and Millennium Pipeline projects."

TriState will have an initial capacity of 450 MMcf/d, but may be economically expanded to a capacity of up to 1 Bcf/d. The estimated cost of the project, based on initial capacity, is expected to be US $400 million. The proposed pipeline is expected to begin service in late 2000.
