El Paso plans 680-mile Ruby gas pipeline

By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, Dec. 11 -- El Paso Corp. has filed a federal right-of-way application with the Department of the Interior's Bureau of Land Management for its Ruby Pipeline, a 680-mile, 42-in. natural gas transmission line from the Opal Hub in Wyoming to the Malin, Ore., interconnect near California's northern border.

The pipeline will have an initial capacity of 1.2 bcfd and will be expandable to 2 bcfd.

On this project, El Paso plans to partner with the Bear Stearns Cos. Inc. subsidiary Bear Energy LP, Houston.

The Ruby Pipeline is expected to be in service in the first quarter of 2011 subject to regulatory approvals.
