Briefs — Columbia Gas Transmission

Staff of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission has prepared an environmental assessment (EA) for Columbia Gas Transmission’s (CGT) proposed B-System Project [CP16-498]. FERC staff concluded that, with appropriate mitigating measures, the project would not significantly affect the quality of the human environment. CGT is proposing to abandon in place 17.5 miles of 20-inch diameter pipeline on Line B-105, build 14 miles of 20-inch diameter replacement pipeline on Line B-111, and other associated modernizations and upgrades to B-System pipelines in Fairfield and Franklin counties in Ohio. FERC will accept comments on the EA through May 30.

Correction

In the article “Consol-Noble JV to Build Marcellus Dry Gas Pipeline” (see Shale Daily, May 29), it was incorrectly reported that a 24-inch diameter dry natural gas pipeline in West Virginia would be completed in six to nine months. The joint venture plans to begin construction of the pipeline in six to nine months, and the time to build and complete the pipeline would be an additional six to nine months. NGI’s Shale Daily regrets the error.

Industry Briefs

Plains All American Pipeline LP (PAA) is constructing the Cactus Pipeline, a 310-mile, 20-inch diameter crude oil pipeline from McCamey to Gardendale, TX. It is expected to enter service during the first quarter of 2015. The partnership said it has a long-term agreement for a majority of the pipeline’s capacity and is talking with other potential shippers. The pipeline is expected to cost $350-375 million and transport both sweet and sour crude oil from the Permian Basin to the PAA/Enterprise Products Partners Eagle Ford Joint Venture (Eagle Ford JV) Pipeline. The Eagle Ford JV Pipeline directly serves the Three Rivers and Corpus Christi markets and can supply the Houston-area market through a connection to the Enterprise South Texas Crude Oil Pipeline. Crude oil delivered on Cactus will have access to rail loading capacity at PAA’s Gardendale station and access to the Eagle Ford JV barge dock facility in the Corpus Christi area. Initial capacity will be about 200,000 b/d.
