Iroquois, Constitution pipelines to develop Wright Interconnect

Iroquois Gas Transmission System and Constitution Pipeline will develop the Wright Interconnect Project (WIP), an expansion of Iroquois’ existing compression and metering facilities in Wright, NY.

WIP will deliver up to 650 MMcfd from Constitution Pipeline’s end Schoharie County, NY, into both Iroquois and the Tennessee Gas Pipeline under a 15-year capacity lease agreement with Constitution.

Leasing WIP capacity from Iroquois will allow Constitution to eliminate its proposed compression facility, reducing its impact on the environment and Wright, NY. Iroquois' expects integration of WIP at its existing facility will reduce potential emissions when compared with Constitution's previously proposed compression site.

The companies have scheduled a March 2015 in-service date for WIP, to coincide with Constitution’s startup. The 30-in. OD, 120-mile Constitution Pipeline will connect the Iroquois and Tennessee systems.

Piedmont Natural gas bought 24% of Constitution late last year (OGJ Online, Nov. 14, 2012). Its other owners are Williams Partners LP (51%) and Cabot Oil and Gas (25%).
