National Fuel Gas Holds Multiple Open Seasons

National Fuel Gas' storage subsidiary, National Fuel Gas Supply, announced three open seasons last week; a 9,750,000 Dth offering of firm storage service and associated firm storage transportation, a 19,100 Dth/d offer for new firm transportation capacity and a 150,000 Dth/d offer of firm transportation service from a proposed new interconnect with Empire State pipeline at Pendleton, NY. All of the open seasons began on Nov. 29 and will end on Dec. 16. In each case, gas flow is expected to occur no later than April 1.

For the firm storage service open season, an 80-day or 110-day service option is available for 6,330,000 Dth. An additional 3,420,000 Dth is available as 150-day service, the company said. A variety of acceptable receipt points and delivery points are being made available for injection and withdrawal.

The new firm transport offer is for gas flowing from TransCanada at Niagra to a variety of receipt points on the National Fuel system including Transcontinental Gas Pipe Line at Wharton, PA and Leidy, PA as well as Texas Eastern Pipeline at Leidy, PA, the company said. Requests for rate discounts will be accepted during this open season. However, discount requests will only be accepted for the non- winter months of April through October.

The new Empire State expansion is still subject to regulatory approval. ANR, the owner of the Empire State pipeline and National Fuel expect the new segment to be in service by Aril 1. Customers can bid on capacity for delivery to points on both the Tennessee and National Fuel systems.
