Thursday, May 31, 2012
The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) has approved Tennessee Gas Pipeline Co.’s plan to expand its 300 Line System in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, U.S.A., including the addition of 22,310 hp (16.6 MW) of compression.
The US$71 million project, which would increase the pipeline’s delivery capacity by 636 MMcfd (18 x 106 m3/day), also involves pipeline loops totaling 40.3 miles (65 km) of 30 in. (762 mm) pipe in the two states.
Tennessee will add 10,310 hp (7.7 MW) of compression at Station 321 in Susquehanna County, Pennsylvania, and 12,000 hp (8.90 MW) at Station 323 in Pike County, Pennsylvania, U.S.A. It also plans modifications at two other stations.
FERC approved the 300 Line System, an expansion of the company’s trunk line in 2010. It went into service last November, and consists of eight pipeline loops totaling 127.4 miles (205 km) of 30 in. (762 mm) pipe, two new compressor stations, and the upgrade/restaging of compressor units at three other stations.
