ENSTOR Holds Non-Binding Open Season For Houston Hub Project

April 2010 Vol. 237 No. 4

ENSTOR conducted a non-binding open season in March for the 16 Bcf Phase I of its Houston Hub project under development 30 miles northeast of Houston.

“Our analysis shows Houston Hub is ideally situated to gain full utility from the shift in natural gas supply dynamics including growing shale production, planned LNG imports and Houston Ship Channel demand,” said Kay Atchison, ENSTOR’s director of marketing.

The FERC issued ENSTOR its Certificate in April 2008 to construct and operate a high-deliverability, multi-cycle salt dome natural gas storage facility on the North Dayton Dome in the Texas Gulf Coast providing for an ultimate capacity of 30 Bcf of working gas with pipeline interconnects with Natural Gas Pipeline Company of America and Transco. Upon completion, and after approval by state regulatory agencies and FERC on ENSTOR’s plans to add to the project scope, including a revision to the in-service date of June 2013 (Phase I) and April 2015 (Phase II), respectively, the facility will have up to five pipeline interconnects, a maximum deliverability of 1 Bcf/d, and will operate as a header system enabling customers to capture value between the various pipelines.
