National Fuel Gas Supply Corp., the principal pipeline and storage subsidiary of National Fuel Gas Co., said its recent nonbinding open season (see Daily GPI, March 27) to offer 500 MMcf/d of capacity or more to Leidy, PA, and/or the proposed Empire and Millennium interconnects received "robust market interest." Bids for transportation service totaled nearly 1 Bcf, the company said. Bids included proposed transportation services from gas supply sources in the Appalachian region of western Pennsylvania, the Rocky Mountain basin via Rockies Express at Clarington, OH, and the Market Hub at Leidy. National Fuel said it is assessing what facilities would be required to accommodate the services requested and expects to begin discussions with those who requested service.
