Millennium Pipeline Co. LLC is holding a binding open season through Feb. 12 for firm transportation capacity commencing Nov. 1, 2013 to support system mainline expansions linking the Marcellus Shale in New York to the state’s Manhattan borough.

“Millennium is uniquely positioned to develop its own mainline expansion capacity and bundle it with contracted services on interconnecting pipelines to provide a seamless transportation service from Marcellus Shale production areas to Manhattan markets,” said Millennium President Dick Leehr.

Information is available at and on Millennium’s electronic bulletin board. Prospective shippers may contact Stan Brownell at (845) 620-1300 or e-mail at

In November Texas Eastern Transmission LP (Tetco) and Iroquois Gas Transmission System LP each announced open seasons for projects that would target growing production in the Marcellus Shale. Tetco announced that Range Resources would be the anchor shipper on an expansion of its system to deliver Marcellus gas to the Northeast (see related story; Daily GPI, Nov. 17, 2009) and Iroquois Gas Transmission System LP announced a nonbinding open season through Friday (Jan. 29) for its NYMarc project, which would connect expanding Marcellus Shale gas supplies to New York, New England and eastern Canadian gas markets (see Daily GPI, Nov. 18, 2009). NYMarc is targeted for service as early as Nov. 1, 2014.
