Kern River Gas Transmission Co. is holding a nonbinding open season through June 18 for firm year-round transportation service from receipt points in Wyoming and Utah to delivery points into California. Any new expansion service resulting from the open season would be available by Jan. 1, 2013.

The open season is being held simultaneously with Pacific Gas and Electric Co.’s California Gas Transmission open season to expand its Baja Path (see Daily GPI, May 20). The PG&E open season proposes to interconnect with the Kern River/Mojave pipelines at a new interconnect to be named Arvin, located adjacent to the bifurcation point on the Kern River/Mojave pipeline connection near Arvin, CA.

Kern River expects the most economically viable project to be delivery of 200,000 Dth/d to the Arvin interconnect and up to an additional 100,000 Dth/d to existing or new delivery points upstream of the Arvin point. The pipeline may consider a larger expansion if supported by market interest, it said.

Expressions of interest are due by 4 p.m. MDT June 18 and can be faxed to (801) 937-6444. For information contact Greg Snow at (801) 937-6270 or Todd Kremer at (801) 937-6273.
