Due to recent flooding and expected rains, Rockies Express Pipeline (REX) has again revised its expected in-service date for REX-East interim service. Now it expects the service to begin in late April or early May, the pipeline said.

“Initial REX-East service (or interim service) is projected to commence late April to early May with a capacity of 1,600 MDth/d into Zone 3,” the pipeline said in an informational posting Wednesday. “This will include deliveries to NGPL (Moultrie County, IL), Trunkline (Douglas County, IL), Midwestern (Edgar County, IL), and PEPL (Putnam County, IN). In addition, REX expects to have the Ameren (Moultrie County, IL) delivery point available for service contemporaneously with the interim service delivery points.”

Service to Lebanon, OH, is projected to commence June 15 with a capacity of 1,600 MDth/d. In-service of the fully powered REX-East pipeline to Clarington, OH, is projected to commence Nov. 1 with capacity of 1,800 MDth/d, the pipeline said.

Earlier in March REX said interim service on the 683-mile REX-East would be delayed from April 1 to the first half of April (see Daily GPI, March 13).

The next project update is scheduled for Thursday (April 2).
