National Fuel Gas Holds Multiple Open Seasons
National Fuel Gas' storage subsidiary, National Fuel Gas Supply,
announced three open seasons last week; a 9,750,000 Dth offering of
firm storage service and associated firm storage transportation, a
19,100 Dth/d offer for new firm transportation capacity and a
150,000 Dth/d offer of firm transportation service from a proposed
new interconnect with Empire State pipeline at Pendleton, NY. All
of the open seasons began on Nov. 29 and will end on Dec. 16. In
each case, gas flow is expected to occur no later than April 1.
For the firm storage service open season, an 80-day or 110-day
service option is available for 6,330,000 Dth. An additional
3,420,000 Dth is available as 150-day service, the company said. A
variety of acceptable receipt points and delivery points are being
made available for injection and withdrawal.
The new firm transport offer is for gas flowing from TransCanada
at Niagra to a variety of receipt points on the National Fuel
system including Transcontinental Gas Pipe Line at Wharton, PA and
Leidy, PA as well as Texas Eastern Pipeline at Leidy, PA, the
company said. Requests for rate discounts will be accepted during
this open season. However, discount requests will only be accepted
for the non- winter months of April through October.
The new Empire State expansion is still subject to regulatory
approval. ANR, the owner of the Empire State pipeline and National
Fuel expect the new segment to be in service by Aril 1. Customers
can bid on capacity for delivery to points on both the Tennessee
and National Fuel systems.
