FERC has approved Kinder Morgan’s request to place into service its Compressor Station 114 in Boyd County, Kentucky as part of the Broad Run Expansion Project.
According to FERC’s Rich McGuire, the company has adequately stabilized areas disturbed by construction and that restoration is proceeding satisfactorily.
The Broad Run Expansion Project includes two new compressor stations in Kanawha County, West Virginia, one new compressor station in Davidson County, Tennessee, and one new compressor station in Madison County, Kentucky. Kinder Morgan also will increase compression capacity by modifying two of its existing compressor stations in Powell and Boyd counties in Kentucky by replacing existing capacity with new, higher-rated horsepower compression units. Once completed, the project will provide an incremental 200,000 dekatherms per day (Dth/d) of firm transportation capacity along the same capacity path as the Broad Run Flexibility project, which was placed in service on Nov. 1, 2015.
The project is expected to be in service in June 2018.
