HOUSTON, June 15 -- CenterPoint Energy Gas Transmission Co. (CEGT), an indirect, wholly owned interstate natural gas pipeline subsidiary of CenterPoint Energy Inc., started a nonbinding, 3-week open season June 14 to gauge market interest in an additional expansion of its nearly 1.9 bcfd, 42-in. OD Carthage-to-Perryville (Line CP) pipeline.

The expansion would support shipment of gas produced from the Haynesville shale for delivery into the Perryville Hub and Carthage area delivery points.

CenterPoint says it could have the expansion in service by fouth-quarter 2012 depending on shipper interest and regulatory approvals.

In addition to supplying Midwest and Northeast markets via Perryville Hub the expansion could move incremental gas into southeast markets through the Southeast Supply Header. CenterPoint said it will also evaluate options for deliveries and interconnectivity of natural gas at Carthage, providing access to Texas markets.

In April 2010 CenterPoint Energy Field Services Inc. announced a 250-MMcfd expansion of its Magnolia gathering and treating system to process production being developed by subsidiaries of Encana and Shell, adding to a 750-MMcfd expansion of the system announced in September 2009 (OGJ Online, May 3, 2010).
