Gulf Coast Connector LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of NGS Energy LP announced Wednesday the start of an open season for service offerings at the company's proposed natural gas storage and transportation hub in northeastern Louisiana.
The company is soliciting non-binding proposals for up to 16 Bcf of storage capacity as well as firm transportation and wheeling services independent of storage. The open season will extend from March 27 to May 9, 2008 at 6 p.m. EST.
The Project's pipeline will extend approximately 40 miles from the busy Perryville hub area to Delhi transporting up to 2.0 Bcf/d of natural gas sourced from key supply areas to highly valued downstream markets. Up to thirteen direct, bi-directional interconnections are planned with existing ANR, Columbia Gulf, MRT, Tennessee, Texas Eastern, Trunkline, Texas Gas, and SNG pipelines; Centerpoint's Carthage to Perryville and Gulf South's East Texas to Mississippi expansions; as well as the proposed Kinder Morgan Midcontinent Express, Boardwalk Gulf Crossing and the Spectra/CenterPoint Southeast Supply Header.
Gulf Coast Connector plans to file permit applications with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission by this summer. The anticipated Phase in-service date is December 2009 for transportation and Summer 2011 for Phase I storage related services.
