Dominion seeks FERC approval for New York, W.Va. gas projects

Dominion, Richmond, Va., reported that it’s seeking approval from the US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission for its New Market project in upstate New York and Clarington project in West Virginia. The projects’ combined cost is $235 million.

The New Market project would provide 112 MMcfd of firm transportation service. Just more than 33,000 hp of compression would be added in upstate New York to Dominion Transmission’s existing system.

The project includes two 11,000-hp compressor stations in Madison County, NY, and Chemung County, NY; 11,000 hp of additional compression at Dominion’s current Brookmans Corners Station in Montgomery County, NY; and upgrades at the existing Borger, Utica, and Brookmans Corners stations.

The project is designed to improve access to gas to serve two National Grid subsidiaries: Niagara Mohawk and Brooklyn Union. If approved and the FERC issues the certificate in April 2015, construction would begin in late summer 2015 and the project would be placed into service by November 2016, Dominion said.

The Clarington project would provide 250 MMcfd of firm transportation service. It would add 16,000 hp of compression at existing stations in West Virginia and Ohio, and provide incremental firm transportation services and increased access for production in the Appalachian region.

If approved and the FERC issues the certificate in May 2015, construction would begin in October 2015 and the project would be placed into service by November 2016, Dominion said.

The project includes two 10,000-hp compressors at the existing Mullett Compressor Station in Monroe County, Ohio; additional 6,000 hp of compression at existing Burch Ridge Compressor Station in Marshall County, W.Va.; and an interconnection with CNX Gas Co. near Lightburn, W.Va., to receive Appalachian gas and deliver it to Texas Eastern Transmission and Rockies Express Pipeline in Monroe County, Ohio.
