Texas Eastern To Develop Ohio Pipeline Energy Network Project

Spectra Energy Corp.’s Texas Eastern Transmission, American Electric Power and Chesapeake Energy Marketing, Inc. plan to develop the Ohio Pipeline Energy Network (OPEN) project, a proposed expansion of the Texas Eastern pipeline system that will connect Ohio’s Utica and Marcellus shale gas supplies with the fast-growing markets attached to the Texas Eastern system, in particular natural gas-fired power generation.

The project will involve 70 miles of new pipeline and create an additional 1 Bcf/d of transportation capacity to serve LDCs, industrial users and gas-fired power generators in the Ohio market, as well as markets along the Texas Eastern system.
A binding open season for the OPEN project is planned shortly with the projected in-service slated for November 2014.
