Boardwalk advances Southeast Market Expansion gas line project

Boardwalk Pipeline Partners LP subsidiary Gulf South Pipeline Co. LP received binding commitments for its proposed Southeast Market Expansion and will move forward with the project. Boardwalk said the project will connect natural gas supplies in northern Louisiana with markets in the southeast US. The project will use both Boardwalk’s Perryville Hub and its Petal gas storage capacity. Perryville supplies Midwest and Northeast markets as well as the Southeast.

Boardwalk expects the Southeast Market Expansion to enter service fourth-quarter 2014 and add 450 MMcfd to Gulf South’s capacity between northern Louisiana and both end-users and downstream interstate pipelines such as Florida Gas Transmission and Gulf Stream Natural Gas System.

Boardwalk expects Gulf South to begin permitting with the US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission in the next 30 days. The project will cost an estimated $300 million.

Gulf South’s 242-mile East Texas to Mississippi Expansion entered service January 2008, moving 1.7 bcfd from Carthage, Tex., through Perryville, La., to Harrisville, Miss. The original Gulf South Southeast Expansion in April 2008 extended 1.27 bcfd of capacity 112 miles east from Mississippi to Transco Station 85 in West Butler, Ala.
