The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) on Thursday authorized Central New York Oil and Gas Co. LLC (CYNOG) to construct and operate additional compression and appurtenant facilities to increase the throughput capacity of the North and South Lateral pipelines at its Stagecoach Storage Facility in Tioga County, NY, and Bradford County, PA. CYNOG said the increased capacity would enable it to permit contracted shippers to wheel gas bi-directionally from Millennium Pipeline to Tennessee Gas Pipeline, or from points along the laterals to either Millennium Pipeline or Tennessee Gas, on a firm basis, independent of any storage service provided at Stagecoach. Following open seasons in 2009 and 2010, CYNOG said it has entered into precedent agreements with two unaffiliated shippers for a total of 225 MMcf/d of firm wheeling capacity and with three shippers for an additional 100 MMcf/d of firm wheeling capacity.
