Maritimes' Halifax, Saint John Lateral About to Begin Service

Maritimes & Northeast Pipeline said last week that it is placing into service about 220,000 MMBtu/d of capacity on two new laterals. The company opened the valves on the Halifax Lateral last week and was close to doing the same on the Saint John lateral.

Halifax will deliver gas to Nova Scotia Power Tufts Cove Generating Station. The 77-mile, 12-inch diameter pipeline extends from a point on the mainline near Stellarton to the Tufts plant in Dartmouth. There are two firm service agreements in place with Nova Scotia Power for a total of 61,600 MMBtu/d.

Construction of the Saint John Lateral is nearly complete. When the pipeline receives a leave-to-open from the National Energy Board, commissioning activities will begin. The lateral is on schedule for service in later this month. Facilities for the Saint John Lateral consist of 63 miles of 16-inch diameter pipeline from a point near Kedron Lake to delivery points in the Saint John and Lake Utopia areas in New Brunswick. The Saint John lateral is designed to transport 164,000 MMBtu/d of gas.

M&NP also said it has received approval from the NEB to build facilities to serve Enbridge Gas New Brunswick's distribution system in eastern, western and southern Saint John. The northern facilities are on hold.
