Millennium expands capacity with Minisink compressor station

Millennium Pipeline Co.’s Minisink compressor station went online June 1 following May 15 approval by the US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission of Millennium’s request for Authorization to Commence Service. Key shippers on the project are Southwestern Energy Services Co., WPX Energy, and MMGS Inc. (Mitsui E&P).

The compressor station and maintenance building occupy 4-5 acres of a 70-acre rural parcel purchased by Millennium for the project in the town of Minisink, NY. The rest of the property buffers nearby neighbors, as do buildings designed to minimize sound, and the planting of more than 100 evergreen trees.

The addition of the Minisink compressor station is part of Millennium’s plans to increase its capacity to 825 MMcfd by late this year from 525 MMcfd in mid-2011. DTE Energy, which owns 26.25% of Millennium, announced plans in mid-2011 to spend $250 million over 5 years on a Marcellus shale gathering system delivering to Millennium in Broome County, NY, and to Tennessee Gas Pipeline in Susquehanna, Pa. (OGJ Online, July 6, 2011).

Millennium last month held a nonbinding open season to gauge interest on a new 60-mile pipeline between the Dominion Transmission system near Cortland, NY, and the Tennessee Gas Pipeline system, near Syracuse (OGJ Online, May 9, 2013).
