Spectra announces Marcellus-to-Georgia natural gas pipeline

Spectra Energy Corp. is holding a nonbinding open season for its 230-mile Renaissance Gas Transmission project, a new pipeline system linking Marcellus, Utica, and Appalachian shale natural gas production to markets in Georgia, Alabama, and Tennessee. The 1.25-bcfd Renaissance project will start at an interconnect with Spectra's Texas Eastern Transmission LP pipeline. In addition to production from the northeastern shales, Texas Eastern offers additional supply options through its access to Gulf of Mexico and Gulf Coast region supplies.

A new 200-MMcfd natural Utica shale gas gathering system announced last week by NiSource Gas Transmission and Storage’s Midstream Services included an interconnect with Texas Eastern (OGJ Online, Mar. 2, 2012).

Spectra also announced a nonbinding letter of intent with AGL Resources to explore a joint business arrangement and transportation service options for local distribution companies owned by AGL Resources operating near the proposed pipeline.

The nonbinding open season will end Mar. 30. Spectra expects Renaissance to enter service in 2015.
