FERC: Compressor Station Project Can Be Placed in Service

Posted on

FERC has approved Northern Natural Gas Company’s request to place into service the Gaines County Crossover Compressor Station Project in Gaines County, Texas.

The Gaines County Crossover Compressor Station Project includes the construction and operation of a new compressor station and related facilities at the “X-shaped” intersection of Northern’s Spraberry to Plains and Kermit to Beaver 30-inch diameter mainlines in Texas. The 18,089 horsepower compressor station consists of two gas-fired turbine compressor units – one 11,152 hp unit and one 6,937 hp unit  – that will compress gas from the Spraberry to Plains mainline into the Kermit to Beaver mainline.

The project will enable Northern to provide 210,000 dekatherms per day of additional firm transportation service to delivery points servicing several natural gas-fired power plants.
