Southern Star Announces Multiple Expansion Plans

December 2009 Vol. 236 No. 12

Southern Star held a successful open season earlier this year to expand its existing storage capacity by 4,000,000 Dth, with an increase in daily deliverability of 40,000 Dth/d.

On Oct. 9, Southern Star filed with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission for authorization to build the facilities necessary for this storage expansion at its Elk City Gas Storage Field near Independence, KS.

Southern Star also experienced a successful open season for its Ozark Advance Expansion Project in Southwest Missouri. Southern Star will be expanding portions of its pipeline system to meet incremental demand from firm transportation shippers in this growing area of the Southern Star Pipeline System.

The company also held a successful open season for the expansion of firm transportation service along its Sedalia Line (Line Segment 235) in western Missouri.
