Iroquois launches opens season for bidirectional flow

HOUSTON, Aug. 31 -- Iroquois Gas Transmission System LP began a binding open season Aug. 30 for its Wright Transfer Compressor (WTC) project, which would add as much as 15,400 hp of transfer compression at Iroquois' existing interconnection with Tennessee Gas Pipeline's 200 Line in Wright, NY.

The company says WTC would address increased shipper interest in making its Wright interconnect bidirectional in light of increases of both Marcellus shale production and LNG imports shipped on Tennessee.

WTC would compress up to 375 MMcfd from Tennessee into Iroquois at Iroquois' rate zone boundary, according to the company, allowing WTC shippers to supply both Zone 1 and Zone 2 markets on Iroquois. Iroquois expects the project to enter service third-quarter 2012.

Results from the open season will determine the final design and scope of the project. Iroquois will accept bids through Oct. 15.

The Iroquois pipeline runs 416 miles from the US-Canadian border at Waddington, NY, through the state of Connecticut to South Commack, Long Island, NY, and Hunts Point, Bronx, NY.
