Kinder Morgan Plans 28-Mile Chicago Pipeline Project

Kinder Morgan announced plans for a new 28-mile gas pipeline near Chicago that would deliver 360,000 Dth/d of gas to a new citygate station being built by an unnamed local distribution company, presumably Northern Illinois Gas Co., near Burnham, IL. Kinder Morgan said it is holding a binding open season on the pipeline project that will end on March 15.

The proposed pipeline would originate at Beecher, IL, but would include leased capacity on the Natural Gas Pipeline Co. of America system, which brings gas to Chicago from the Southwest, Midcontinent, Gulf Coast and the Rocky Mountain region. However, the new pipeline also would include interconnects to several other pipelines that serve the Chicago market.

Depending on the results of the open season, Kinder Morgan said the pipeline's capacity may be increased. Kinder Morgan already has an anchor shipper for the project, including a signed prearranged agreement for a large amount of the proposed capacity.

Shippers interested in obtaining additional information about the project should contact Frank Strong at (630) 691-3790.
