FERC has approved Columbia Gas Transmission’s (TCO) request for a pre-filing review process for the proposed Mountaineer Xpress project, which could carry up to 2.7 Bcf/d of Utica and Marcellus shale gas to the TCO pool and other points.

Columbia Gas Transmission LLC has applied at FERC for a certificate for its Leach XPress project, which would add up to 1.53 million Dth/d of capacity to “more liquid markets” for gas from Appalachia.

Permian Basin crude oil pricing increasingly is impacted as bottlenecks develop, but Concho Resources Inc. isn’t waiting around for someone else to expand the midstream systems, CEO Tim Leach said on Thursday.
The developer of the Bobcat Gas Storage facility in St. Landry Parish, LA, Port Barre Investments LLC, asked FERC for permission to leach three new salt dome caverns to hold an additional 24 Bcf of working gas, expand the Bobcat Compressor Station, add four meter stations and loop the North and West Pipeline Corridors. The storage facility currently is certificated for two caverns totaling 15.6 Bcf of working capacity. The expansion would raise the facility’s working capacity to 39.6 Bcf and increase the maximum deliverability to 3 Bcf/d from 1.2 Bcf/d and maximum receipt capacity to 1.6 Bcf/d from 900 MMcf/d. FERC earlier gave Bobcat Gas Storage the green light to place one of the previously certificated caverns in service (see NGI, Nov. 10). The cavern was expected to have 6 Bcf of total storage capacity at start-up, and is expandable to 7.8 Bcf. Helping to develop the facility is Haddington Energy Partners III LLC, a private equity fund. The Bobcat facility is 45 miles from Henry Hub and provides access to gas from offshore in the Gulf of Mexico and onshore in Texas and Louisiana.
