HOUSTON, Aug. 19 -- Kinder Morgan Interstate Gas Transmission LLC (KMIGT), a subsidiary of Kinder Morgan Energy Partners LP, Houston, said it would hold an open season to gauge shipper interest in its planned Advantage natural gas expansion project. The open season, which was launched Aug. 7, will end Sept. 6.

The proposed project will offer 324 MMcfd firm gas transportation to various market areas between Cheyenne Hub, in Weld County, Colo., and Kansas City, in Jackson County, Mo. KMIGT would build and operate 411 miles of 24-in. pipeline with about 27,000 hp of new compression. The line would have interconnections with Natural Gas Pipeline Co. of America in Lincoln County, Kan., and Northern Natural Gas Co. and KMIGT's existing Pony Express Pipeline, both in Ottawa County, Kan.

"The additional infrastructure would address rapidly increasing natural gas supplies in Wyoming, providing utilities and end-use markets access to a growing supply source, as well as providing producers and marketers with greater access to liquid midcontinent pipelines. . .," Kinder Morgan noted.
