Dominion Announces Open Season to Leidy

Dominion Transmission is conducting an open season for an upgrade of its system to provide 300 MMcf/d of new firm transportation from Canadian and Midwestern points to the Leidy, PA, hub for connections to major markets in the Northeast.

The firm transportation will be available from four pipeline interconnects as well as Dominion's North Point, and will go to interconnects at Leidy in north central Pennsylvania with the Texas Eastern and Transco pipelines. The upstream interconnects are with Empire at Lysander in New York, Iroquois at Canajoharie in New York, and Tennessee at Ellisburg and Sabinsville in Pennsylvania. The final facilities and capacity for the expansion will be determined by the results of the open season. Dominion also will do a reverse open season to evaluate potential turnback capacity to avoid overbuilding. The company has scoped out several different potential scenarios.

Dominion's lines (CNG Transmission) stretch across Ohio, Pennsylvania, West Virginia and to the Canadian border in New York. The company operates the largest underground storage system in the United States.

The open season began Sept. 20 and will conclude at 5 p.m. (EDT), Oct. 27. Dominion anticipates that 150 MDth/d of service could be available as early as November 2001, with the remaining 150 MDth/d available by November 2002.

Rates for the transportation from Dominion's northern points will be determined at the end of the open season. Information is available from Joe Kienle, director, business development, at (804) 819 -2114, and is on Dominion's electronic bulletin board. It will be posted on Dominion's website at in the near future.
