HOUSTON, Aug. 27 -- Inergy LP-subsidiary Inergy Midstream LLC received indications of interest exceeding 400% of capacity required to construct its 43-mile Marc I Hub Line and exceeding 600% of capacity required to construct its North-South project during recently closed open seasons on the two systems.

The projects will allow bidirectional shipment of natural gas 75 miles between the Millennium Pipeline in Tioga County, NY, and Transcontinental Gas Pipeline Corp.’s Leidy Line in Columbia County, Pa., enhancing connectivity of the Marcellus shale to east-coast markets, according to Inergy. The December 2008 of the Empire Connector linked the Millennium Pipeline in Chemung County, NY, with National Fuel Gas’s system southeast of Rochester, NY (OGJ Online, Jan. 15, 2009). Empire Connector is a National Fuel Gas subsidiary.

The Inergy projects will use pipe of up to 36-in. OD. Shippers will also be able to reach destinations lying between Millennium’s and Transco’s lines.

Inergy expects the Marc I and North-South projects to enter service in fourth-quarter 2011, pending regulatory approval. The company is finalizing design and route selection and structuring long-term binding agreements with shippers, with an intent to file all regulatory applications in 2009.

Inergy plans to have its 7 bcf Thomas Corners natural gas storage development and its 5 milllion bbl Finger Lakes LPG storage development operational second-quarter 2010.

Global LNG: Adjusting to New Realities

Fri, Mar 20, 2015

Oil & Gas Journal’s March 20, 2015, webcast will look at how global LNG trade will be affected over the next 12-24 months by falling crude oil prices and changing patterns and pressures of demand. Will US LNG production play a role in balancing markets? Or will it add to a growing global oversupply of LNG for markets remote from easier natural gas supply? Will new buyers with marginal credit, smaller requirements, or great need for flexibility begin to look attractive to suppliers? How will high-cost, mega-projects in Australia respond to new construction cost trends?

US Midstream at a Crossroads

Fri, Mar 6, 2015

Oil & Gas Journal’s Mar. 6, 2015, webcast will focus on US midstream companies at an inflection point in their development in response to more than 6 years shale oil and gas production growth. Major infrastructure—gas plants, gathering systems, and takeaway pipelines—have been built. Major fractionation hubs have expanded. Given the radically changed pricing environment since mid-2014, where do processors go from here? What is the fate of large projects caught in mid-development? How to producers and processors cooperate to ensure a sustainable and profitable future? This event will serve to set the discussion table for the annual GPA Convention in San Antonio, Apr. 13-16, 2015.

This event is sponsored by Leidos Engineering.

The Future of US Refining

Fri, Feb 6, 2015

Oil & Gas Journal’s Feb. 6, 2015, webcast will focus on the future of US refining as various forces this year conspire to pull the industry in different directions. Lower oil prices generally reduce feedstock costs, but they have also lowered refiners’ returns, as 2015 begins with refined products priced at lows not seen in years. If lower per-barrel crude prices dampen production of lighter crudes among shale plays, what will happen to refiners’ plans to export more barrels of lighter crudes? And as always, refiners will be affected by government regulations, particularly those that suppress demand, increase costs, or limit access to markets or supply.
