Millennium gauges interest in New York pipeline expansion

Millennium Pipeline Co. is holding a nonbinding open season for firm transportation service through the use of both existing capacity and construction of at least one compressor station and about 60 miles of pipeline. The new line would connect the Dominion Transmission system near Cortland, NY, and the Tennessee Gas Pipeline System near Syracuse, NY.

The open season will close May 31.

NiSource Gas Transmission & Storage last year announced its East Side Expansion, adding up to 310 MMcfd of capacity to Columbia Gas Transmission’s system between the Marcellus shale and northeastern US markets. The project includes enhancing interconnects with Millennium Pipeline at Columbia’s Wagoner metering station and with Tennessee Gas Pipeline at Milford compressor station (OGJ Online, Oct. 29, 2012).

NiSource anticipates starting work on the expansion in early 2015 to meet a targeted in-service date, pending regulatory approval, of late 2015.
