CNYOG Moves Forward With MARC II Pipeline

Posted on

Crestwood Midstream Partners LP announced that its subsidiary, Central New York Oil & Gas Co. LLC (CNYOG), which owns the North-South and MARC I pipelines and the Stagecoach storage facility, has successfully concluded a non-binding open season to solicit interest for firm transportation of natural gas on a proposed new 30-mile pipeline extending CNYOG’s system to the proposed PennEast Pipeline, a new interconnect on Transco’s Leidy Line, and Transco’s proposed Atlantic Sunrise Expansion project in Luzerne County, PA. Crestwood has received non-binding indications of interest for firm transportation on the proposed MARC II Pipeline in excess of 700 MMcf/d.
  The MARC II Pipeline would provide additional market access for gas received from multiple receipt points into the existing CYNOG system including the Stagecoach storage facility, major gathering systems owned by Southwestern Energy and Access Midstream Partners, and both the Millennium and Tennessee Gas Pipeline interstate natural gas systems. CYNOG’s existing system has the capability to receive over 2.5 Bcf/d of Marcellus supply and is in the process of adding a third interconnect with Access Midstream Partners’ gathering system in 2015 that will expand its total Marcellus supply access to approximately 3.3 Bcf/d. Crestwood plans to conduct a binding open season for the MARC II Pipeline in early November.
  Crestwood anticipates a MARC II Pipeline in-service date in the fourth quarter of 2017. This date is subject to change based on the outcome of the binding open season.
