FERC has approved Kinder Morgan’s request to utilize 0.04 acre of additional temporary workspace at milepost 8.26 on the Connecticut Loop in Hartford, Connecticut as part of the Connecticut Expansion Project.
According to FERC’s Elaine Baum, the company states that the additional temporary workspace is necessary to construct the receiver site at the existing meter station.
The Connecticut Expansion Project includes approximately 13.42 miles of 24-inch and 36-inch diameter pipeline looping in Albany County, N.Y., Berkshire and Hampden Counties, Mass. and Hartford County, Conn., minor modifications at one compressor station in Massachusetts, and installation of minor appurtenant facilities. Once finished, it will provide approximately 72,100 dekatherms per day of additional firm natural gas transportation capacity.
The project is expected to be operational on November 1, 2017.
