Iroquois Holds Compressor Project Open Season

October 2010 Vol. 237 No. 10

Iroquois Gas Transmission System, L.P. is holding a binding open season for its Wright Transfer Compressor (WTC) project which would add up to 15,400 horsepower of transfer compression at Iroquois’ existing interconnection with Tennessee Gas Pipeline’s 200 Line in Wright, NY.

As supplies on Tennessee have increased from Marcellus Shale and Atlantic LNG, Iroquois has received significant interest from shippers in making its Wright interconnect bi-directional. WTC would compress up to 375 MDth/d from Tennessee into Iroquois at Iroquois’ rate zone boundary, thereby enabling WTC shippers to supply Zone 1 and Zone 2 markets on Iroquois. The project is targeted for service commencing in 2012. Results from the open season will determine the final design and scope of the project.

Bids are being accepted beginning through Oct. 15, 2010. Open season bid forms and information on the WTC project are available at
