Tennessee Gas Pipeline Company, L.L.C. Key Developments

Kinder Morgan Inc. Approves Tennessee Gas Pipeline Company to Proceed with Tennessee Gas Pipeline’s Northeast Energy Direct Project

Kinder Morgan Inc. announced that its board of directors authorized KMI’s subsidiary, Tennessee Gas Pipeline Company to proceed with TGP's Northeast Energy Direct (NED) project's 'market path' segment from Wright, New York, to Dracut, Massachusetts, a $3.3 billion investment designed to serve natural gas utilities and electricity generation customers in New England. NED is designed to supply a critical energy resource, domestically produced, abundant and clean natural gas, to help alleviate New England’s uniquely high natural gas and electricity costs caused by the severely limited natural gas transportation capacity currently serving the region. NED will be an extension off of KMI’s existing TGP pipeline, which has safely delivered natural gas to New England since the 1950's. The additional supply of natural gas that will be transported by NED is also essential to facilitating the region’s ability to continue to reduce carbon emissions by replacing existing older coal- and oil-fired electric generation plants with cleaner natural gas-fired electricity generation, and increasing deployment of renewable energy sources such as wind and solar. Natural gas and renewable energy have a symbiotic relationship. Solar and wind resources are only available when the sun is shining or the wind is blowing. To ensure that electricity is available for homes, businesses and industry on a reliable basis, operators of the electric grid need reliable sources of power to account for the variability associated with increased reliance on renewable energy. Because of its flexibility and reliability, natural gas-fired electric generation serves as the ideal reliable source of electricity to support renewable energy.

Tennessee Gas Pipeline Company Submits Application to Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to Operate Susquehanna West Project

Federal Energy Regulatory Commission announced that it has received notice that on April 2, 2015, Tennessee Gas Pipeline Company, L.L.C. filed an application pursuant to section 7(c) of the Natural Gas Act (NGA) requesting authorization to construct and operate its Susquehanna West Project located in Pennsylvania. Tennessee asserts that the proposed Project will increase east-to-west delivery capacity in the region by approximately 145,000 dekatherms per day. Tennessee states that the Project involves: Approximately 8.1 miles of new 36-inch diameter pipeline looping in Tioga County, Pennsylvania; pipeline modifications associated with the pipeline loops; modification to piping at three existing compressor stations, which are Compressor Station 315, Compressor Station 317, and Compressor Station 319; and increase in horsepower at two of the three existing compressor stations. Tennessee estimates the cost of the project to be approximately $156.4 million, all as more fully set forth in the application which is on file with the commission and open to public inspection.

Tennessee Gas Pipeline Company, L.L.C. Unveils Anchor Shippers for Northeast Energy Direct Project

Tennessee Gas Pipeline Company, L.L.C., or TGP, a subsidiary of Kinder Morgan Inc., has unveiled its anchor shippers for Northeast Energy Direct Project, or NED. Collectively, the anchor shippers have executed agreements to transport approximately 500,000 dekatherms per day (Dth/d) of incremental natural gas supplies sourced from the prolific Marcellus Shale region to meet New England's growing consumer and industrial gas needs, as well as helping to bolster electric reliability. NED's market path component, from Wright, New York, to Dracut, Massachusetts, and beyond, is scalable to 1.2 billion cubic feet per day (Bcf/d), or ultimately 2.2 Bcf/d. A project in-service date of November 2018 is planned. Anchor shippers that have executed binding precedent agreements include: National Grid, 186,963 Dth/d; Liberty Utilities, 115,000 Dth/d; Columbia Gas of Massachusetts, 114,300 Dth/d; and Connecticut Natural Gas Corporation, Southern Connecticut Gas Corporation, The Berkshire Gas Company, The City of Westfield Gas & Electric Light Department and others.
