Canadian LNG projects spawn transport pacts

By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, July 19 -- Maritimes & Northeast Pipeline has signed separate agreements with Anadarko Petroleum Corp. and Repsol YPF SA for transportation of natural gas from LNG terminals the companies are building or plan in Canada.

For Anadarko, Maritimes plans to transport 813,000 MMbtu/day of gas from the Bear Head LNG terminal Anadarko is building near Point Tupper, NS (OGJ, Nov. 8, 2004, Newsletter). For Repsol YPF, Maritimes plans to transport 750,000 MMbtu/day from the Canaport LNG terminal planned by Repsol and Irving Oil Ltd. near Saint John, NB (OGJ, June 13, 2005, Newsletter).

Deliveries from both terminals are to begin in 2008.

Maritimes will have to increase pipeline capacity in Canada and the US to accommodate the agreements. The company plans to start engineering design work, leading to expansion applications late this year or early in 2006 to Canada's National Energy Board and the US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.
