Industry won a hotly contested test case of ability to build pipelines and tanker ports in sensitive Canadian territory when federal authorities Thursday approved a new oilsands conduit from Alberta to the northern Pacific Coast of British Columbia (BC).
In a notice published in theFederal RegisterWednesday, the Transportation Department’s Maritime Administration (MARAD) announced its final authorization of the decommissioning of the Gulf Gateway Energy Bridge Deepwater Port, the first deepwater liquefied natural gas (LNG) import facility of its kind in the world. The Excelerate Energy LP facility is being retired just eight years after it went into service in the Gulf of Mexico.
A bill signed by President Obama Tuesday allows for the construction and operation of natural gas pipeline facilities in the New York portion of the Gateway National Recreation Center, a 26,600-acre National Recreation Area in the Port of New York and New Jersey. HR 2606, which was introduced last year by three congressman representing Brooklyn and Queens — Republicans Michael Grimm and Robert Turner, and Democrat Gregory Meeks — was approved by the House and Senate earlier this year. The legislation will allow a new pipeline to be built off of an existing Williams pipeline to replace a 40-60 year old pipe and bring natural gas from New Jersey to Long Island. The pipeline will pass under Jacob Riis Park in the Rockaways portion of Queens and under Jamaica Bay to a new meter and regulator station on Floyd Bennett Field in Brooklyn. The project would generate an estimated $265 million on construction activity and 300 construction jobs, according to Grimm.
FERC Friday gave Dominion Transmission Inc. (DTI) the go-ahead to place into service its Appalachian Gateway pipeline, which will loosen a bottleneck to allow for the transportation of shale and conventional natural gas production from West Virginia and southwestern Pennsylvania to growing markets in the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast. The facilities were to begin service on Saturday (Sept. 1), said DTI spokesman Dan Donovan.
Renewable Manufacturing Gateway (RMG) and Aither Chemicals LLC have agreed to collaborate on a $750 million ethane cracker for Marcellus Shale gas, the two nonprofit organizations said Monday. A specific location within southwestern Pennsylvania, Ohio or West Virginia for the facility has not been identified, they said.
The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission Thursday approved Dominion Transmission Inc. (DTI) proposal to build its Appalachian Gateway pipeline, which would carry shale and conventional gas production from West Virginia and southwestern Pennsylvania to growing markets in the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast regions.
FERC Thursday issued a favorable environmental assessment (EA) of Dominion Transmission Inc.’s Appalachian Gateway Project, which would provide additional capacity to deliver a mix of southwestern Pennsylvania Marcellus Shale gas and West Virginia conventional gas to market.
The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission has issued a favorable environmental assessment of Dominion Transmission Inc.’s Appalachian Gateway Project, which would provide additional capacity to deliver a mix of southwestern Pennsylvania Marcellus Shale gas and West Virginia conventional gas to market [CP10-448]. “Conventional production of natural gas is increasing in the Appalachian region of West Virginia and Pennsylvania. The region is also experiencing a strong emergence of non-conventional production from coalbed methane and Marcellus Shale gas. This production growth and new supplies from other regions, like the Rockies, are competing for gas pipeline capacity within the Appalachian region,” said Dominion Transmission, a subsidiary of Richmond, VA-based Dominion Resources. The project calls for the construction of about 110 miles of 20-, 24- and 30-inch diameter pipeline between West Virginia and Pennsylvania, as well as four compressor stations, adding about 17,000 hp. It would enable Dominion Transmission to transport an additional 484,260 Dth/d of gas to markets in the Mid-Atlantic and northeastern United States. The pipeline would deliver the gas to an interconnect with Texas Eastern Transmission at Oakford in Delmont, PA. Construction is expected to get under way this year, with in-service targeted for September 2012.
