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.
