Industry Briefs

Incremental Northeast gas production during September will be driven by gathering system tie-ins, Bentek Energy LLC said in a Natural Gas Production Monitor market note. Transcontinental Gas Pipe Line Co. (Transco) is expected to add connections to two Penn Virginia Resource Partners LP gathering systems and additional compression on Williams’ Springville system is to come online this month, Bentek said. “Combined delivery capacity to Transco from the new tie-ins and compression upgrades will amount to more than 1 Bcf/d; however, Transco will likely not be able to accept more than 0.4 Bcf/d with a substantial portion of the Leidy Line capacity reserved for no-notice service,” the firm said. It expects Northeast production to add 0.2 Bcf/d during September, with the remainder of the Transco capacity filling through October. In November, the Tennessee Gas Pipeline Northeast Supply Diversification and the National FuelGas Co. Northern Access expansions are expected to support a winter production growth rate of about 0.2 Bcf/d each month through January (see Shale Daily, July 18), Bentek said.
