By the OGJ Online Staff

HOUSTON, July 11 -- Questar Corp., Salt Lake City, said Tuesday it has received approvals to begin construction of its Main Line No. 104, a 75-mile gas pipeline in Utah.

The US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission approved the project July 2 and the Bureau of Land Management and the US Forest Service cleared it July 10.

The $80-million pipeline will extend from near Price, Utah, west to connect with the Kern River Gas Transmission Co. line near Elberta, Utah. It will run parallel to a portion of Questar's Main Line No. 40, all of Main Line No. 41, then through a new 17-mile corridor to the Kern River Pipeline. All of the capacity on the new line is under contract to shippers.

The 24-in. line will operate at a maximum of 1,400 psi and move 272,000 dekatherms/day. Completion is expected by November.

Nick Rose, Questar Pipeline president and CEO, said the project "will help meet the rapidly increasing energy needs of customers along the Wasatch Front" and in other locations in the West.
