Posted on

El Paso and Spectra announced that their jointly developed project, Marcellus Ethane Pipeline System (MEPS), held a 30-day open season in an effort to secure binding commitments from potential shippers that desire ethane transportation service from West Virginia and Pennsylvania Marcellus shale supply areas to destination interconnect points with third party ethane pipelines or storage facilities in the Gulf Coast area. The project is being designed to transport up to 90,000 bpd and has an anticipated in-service date of late 2014. The open season closed July 27.
