TGP Seeks FERC Approval to Upgrade NED Capacity

December 2015 Vol. 242, No. 12

Tennessee Gas Pipeline, a Kinder Morgan company, filed with FERC to increase capacity of the proposed Northeast Energy Direct (NED) project to 1.2 Bcf/d, an increase from 1 Bcf/d as submitted in earlier documents. TGP plans several route modifications on both the mainline and delivery laterals.

The anticipated in-service date for the NED project remains Nov. 1, 2018.

The Supply Path of the project originates in the dry gas heart of the Marcellus Shale along TGP’s existing 300 Line in northeast Pennsylvania and extends to Wright, NY and is scalable up to 1.2 Bcf/d. The Market Path originates at Wright and extends to Dracut, MA and points beyond, utilizing the market reach of TGP’s legacy system and is scalable up to 1.3 Bcf/d.

As configured, NED project facilities are composed of the following:
