HOUSTON, June 30 -- Marcellus Ethane Pipeline System (MEPS) is holding a 30-day open season to secure binding commitments from potential shippers for ethane transportation service from fractionation plants in the Marcellus shale to interconnect points with third party ethane pipelines or storage facilities along the Gulf Coast.

The open season began June 27 and will close at 5:00 p.m., July 27. The pipeline system is a 50-50 joint venture of El Paso Midstream Group Inc. and Spectra Energy Transmission LLC.

MEPS is designed to transport up to 90,000 b/d with an anticipated in-service date of fourth-quarter 2014.

El Paso and Spectra formed MEPS in October 2010, initially planning transport of as much as 60,000 b/d ethane by late 2013 (OGJ Online, Oct. 28, 2010).
