Alliance Pipeline Offers Post-2015 Capacity

September 2013, Vol. 240 No. 9

Alliance Pipeline is offering capacity on its system for natural gas transportation services effective Dec. 1, 2015.

Starting Aug. 15, through a Precedent Agreement process, customers can express interest in Dec.1, 2015 capacity on the Alliance system. Capacity will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis as Precedent Agreements are executed.

“Since last October, when we launched our proposed New Services Framework, Alliance has held over 60 customer consultations. The consultation process helped us further refine our service offerings to better meet shippers’ needs in a dynamic marketplace”, said Daniel Sutherland, vice president, Business Development.

Most of Alliance’s original 15-year term transportation agreements end Nov. 30, 2015 and Alliance’s new service offerings will be the basis for re-contracting the pipeline.

Alliance’s New Services Framework includes:
?predictable and competitive fixed tolls;
?a suite of pipeline services to appeal to a diverse range of customers;
?a new Canadian trading pool; and,
?low-cost rich gas transportation to premium downstream markets that recognizes the commercial risks in today’s natural gas marketplace.

As part of this new framework, Alliance will be applying for regulatory approval to change its Hydrocarbon Dewpoint (HCDP) tariff specification effective Dec. 1, 2015. The change will facilitate an increase in the NGL component of the gas Alliance transports.
