HOUSTON, Nov. 24 -- El Paso Corp., Houston, is seeking a Federal Energy Regulatory Commission certificate by July 31, 2005, to construct and operate the 41-mile US portion of its proposed 128-mile, 26-in. Seafarer natural gas pipeline (OGJ Online, Mar. 26, 2002).
The system would extend from the proposed High Rock LNG regasification terminal on Grand Bahama Island to a connection with the existing Florida Gas Transmission pipeline system in Palm Beach County, Fla. The 87-mile international segment would extend from the terminal to the US-Bahamas Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) boundary in the Atlantic Ocean.
Construction is scheduled to begin in 2006, with the pipeline slated to be in service by 2008.
