Antero books all of TGP gas pipeline expansion capacity

Antero Resources Inc. was awarded all of the natural gas capacity offered by Kinder Morgan Energy Partners LP’s Tennessee Gas Pipeline Co. (TGP) in an open season for its proposed Broad Run Flexibility and Broad Run Expansion projects.

The open season totaled 790 MMcfd of firm capacity for 15 years on the Broad Run Lateral in West Virginia and on TGP’s 100 and 500 mainlines. The projects include horsepower and piping modifications at existing stations, and one compressor station on the Broad Run Lateral, all in West Virginia; two TGP mainline compressor stations in Tennessee and Kentucky; and modifications to five existing mainline compressor stations in Kentucky.

The Broad Run Flexibility Project provides 590 MMcfd of firm transportation capacity from TGP’s Broad Run Lateral in TGP Zone 3 to mutually agreeable delivery points in TGP Zone 1. TGP expects the Broad Run Flexibility Project to enter service Nov. 1, 2015. TGP expects the Broad Run Expansion Project to provide an incremental 200 MMcfd firm transportation capacity on the same path by Nov. 1, 2017.

KMEP expects the projects to cost $782 million.

Antero last month became the anchor ethane supplier for Brazil-based Odebrecht SA subsidiary Odebrecht Oil & Gas SA’s proposed Appalachian Shale Cracker Enterprise petrochemical complex in Wood County, W.Va. (OGJ Online, Mar. 28, 2014).
