Tractebel Calypso Natural Gas Pipeline Receives Federal Approval


Published:

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission granted its final approval and issued a Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity (CPCN) to Tractebel Calypso Pipeline LLC. Tractebel North America Inc. is a business unit of Tractebel Electricity & Gas International, one of the three business divisions of SUEZ.

The CPCN authorizes Tractebel to construct, own, operate and maintain the 42-mile jurisdictional pipeline from the border of the Exclusive Economic Zone between the United States and the Bahamas to a proposed interconnection near Port Everglades, Florida.

Pre-construction activities are under way for the pipeline project, with construction expected to begin this summer. Tractebel anticipates initial gas deliveries to begin in 2007.

The proposed Tractebel Calypso project will transport natural gas via pipeline from the planned Tractebel Calypso liquefied natural gas storage and regasification facility in Freeport, Grand Bahama. The U.S. segment of the pipeline would make landfall at Port Everglades, Florida, then travel onshore to a proposed interconnection with the Florida Gas Transmission system adjacent to Florida Power & Light's Lauderdale power plant. The Tractebel Calypso pipeline will transport approximately 832 million cubic feet of natural gas into Florida per day.
