Millennium Pipeline Co. LLC and sponsors of its proposed natural gas compressor station project in Minisink, NY, which would boost the company’s firm deliveries of Marcellus Shale gas to about 675,000 Dth/d to serve the Northeast and New England markets, continue to await FERC’s final decision on the application, originally filed almost a year ago.

Producers in the booming Bakken Shale are getting their wish for more infrastructure with the announcement Friday that a unit of Plains All American Pipeline LP (PAA) will construct a cryogenic gas processing plant to serve them. Separately, Alliance Pipeline has filed for a FERC certificate for its previously announced Tioga Lateral project.
Williams and Dominion are partnering to develop the Keystone Connector pipeline, designed to carry up to 1 Bcf/d from the Rockies Express Pipeline (REX) terminus in Ohio to eastern and Mid-Atlantic markets. Under the proposal, the sponsors want to place the 240-mile pipeline into service by 2013. The proposed pipeline would extend from Clarington, OH, to Williams’ Transcontinental Gas Pipe Line (Transco) Station 195 in southeastern Pennsylvania. Williams and Dominion would work with potential shippers to determine the level of interest in the proposal. Williams, through its Rockies Connector project, and Dominion, through its original Keystone project, said they had worked independently over the past two years on various proposals to the Northeast markets with Rockies and growing Marcellus Shale gas supplies. After holding open seasons in 2007, Williams last year decided to combine its Rockies Connector and Northeast Connector projects into the Northeast Supply Project to move gas from Clarington to various delivery points in Transco’s Zone 6 (see NGI, May 12, 2008). Meanwhile, an open season for Dominion’s original Keystone pipeline was launched last year to transport up to 1 Bcf/d from southwestern Pennsylvania, the heart of the Marcellus Shale, to East Coast markets (see NGI, July 7, 2008). The pipeline was to carry gas to Chester County, PA, for delivery to eastern markets through pipes operated by Dominion, Spectra, Williams and NiSource. For information contact Transco’s Jim Moore at (713) 215-3081 or Dominion’s Jeff Keister at (804) 771-4459.
