FERC Gives Green Light for Dominion’s Clarington Project

Posted on


Dominion Transmission Inc. received FERC approval for its Clarington project under a request filed in June 2014. Upon completion, the project will enable Dominion to provide an additional 250,000 Dth/d of firm transportation capacity, which has been contracted for by Consol Energy, under a 15-year precedent agreement.

The project involves construction of two new 10,000-hop compressors at the Mullet Compressor Station in Monroe County, OH and an additional 6,000 hp of compression at the Burch Ridge Compressor Station in Marshall County, WV.

Dominion will receive Appalachian gas from a new interconnect with Consol near Lightburn, WV and will deliver to two new interconnects in Monroe County: one with Texas Eastern Transmission (TETCO) at TET-Arman Hill and the other with Rockies Express Pipeline (REX) at REXGerman Ridge.

Clarington is projected to cost $76.6 million and Dominion expects to begin construction in October
to meet the November 2016 in-service date.
