HOUSTON, Dec. 8 -- Florida Gas Transmission Co. (FGT), Houston, has called an open season, requesting interest from shippers in securing capacity on the Phase VII capacity expansion of its Florida pipeline system.
The expansion would serve new markets by mid-2007. FGT already has signed a precedent agreement to provide firm transportation service to Progress Energy Florida's Hines generating facilities near Tampa.
FGT said it also would consider offers from existing shippers to permanently release firm capacity, reducing the need for construction of incremental facilities.
The open season is effective until Dec. 31.
