Tennessee Open Season for 500 Line Expansion

Tennessee Open Season for 500 Line Expansion

Tennessee Gas Pipeline is holding an open season through May 31 to solicit interest in its Mississippi 500 Line Expansion Project. Tennessee expects the expansion to involve about 700,000 Dth/d of firm service starting June 1, 2001.

The project is aimed at providing firm mainline capacity between Tennessee's existing interconnect with Petal Gas Storage near Hattiesburg, MS, and a point seven miles downstream of Main Line Valve 539 near Rosehill, MS, and between Rosehill and proposed interconnects with Sonat and Destin Pipeline at or near Sonat's Enterprise (MS) Compressor Station. The capacity must use the Petal interconnect and the Enterprise interconnect as receipt and delivery points and may involve receipt points and delivery points along, adjacent to, or in the proximity of Tennessee's 500 Line between those two points.

Minimum contract terms are 10 years. Completed bid packages must be received by Tennessee by 5 p.m. (CDT) on May 31. Additional information regarding the open season can be obtained from Larry Williams, manager of business development for Tennessee, at (713) 420-6004.
