Tuscarora Lateral Approved by FERC
FERC has approved a proposal by Tuscarora Gas Transmission to
increase its mainline capacity and construct a new lateral to
provide up to 10,000 Dth/d of FT for Sierra Pacific Power.
The increased capacity on the 229-mile mainline line from an
interconnect with PG&E Gas Transmission Northwest at Malin, OR
to a meter station near the Tracy Power plant in Storey County, NV,
will serve a growing load on the Sierra Pacific system.
Over the last three years SPPC has experienced an annual average
increase of 4.6% in its customer base. The 15-year contract calls
for rolled in pricing. Cost of the project is estimated at $10.2
