Natural Gas Pipeline Company of America LLC (NGPL) launched a 14-day non-binding open season to gauge interest in the potential 750-MMcfd incremental expansion of its Gulf Coast mainline system from the Rockies Express Pipeline (REX) interconnection at Moultrie, Ill., to points south. The expansion would include the reversal of compressor stations, and minor pipe replacement and upgrade activities along NGPL.
The open season ends Mar. 4.
The US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission in December approved the reversal of REX to allow east-to-west transportation. REX’s final leg began operations in 2009, completing the transport of natural gas from Wyoming to Ohio (OGJ Online, Nov. 13, 2009).
