HOUSTON, Apr. 13 -- Kinder Morgan Inc. subsidiary Natural Gas Pipeline Co. of America (NGPL) is seeking shipper interest for a proposed expansion of capacity of its Gulf Coast and Louisiana natural gas pipelines by a combined 200,000 dekatherms/day.
NGPL has started a binding open season to run through May 2. Subject to shipper support and regulatory approvals, the expanded capacity is expected to be available in January 2008.
The project would increase horsepower at existing compressor stations, loop pipelines, and add metering equipment.
The Gulf Coast mainline carries gas from South Texas to Chicago. The Louisiana line runs from the Gulf Coast line at Montgomery County, Tex., to connections with other systems to the east.
