FERC has conditionally approved Kinder Morgan’s request to use an additional 12-acre contractor yard in the Township of Gibson, Susquehanna County, Pennsylvania for the Triad Expansion Project.
“Due to the project’s proximity to Rock Creek, a perennial stream (30 feet from the limit of disturbance), please note that section V.B.2. of the Commission’s Wetland and Waterbody Construction and Mitigation Procedures requires that all extra workspace areas be located at least 50 feet away from water’s edge, except where the adjacent upland consists of cultivated or rotated cropland or other disturbed land,” Alisa M. Lykens Chief, Gas Branch 2, with FERC, said.
The Triad Expansion Project consists of approximately seven miles of new 36-inch diameter pipeline looping along Tennessee Gas Pipeline Company’s existing line right-of-way in Lenox and Clifford Townships, Susquehanna County, Pennsylvania. Upon completion, the project will increase natural gas delivery capacity by approximately 180,000 dekatherms per day. The project is expected to be operational on Nov. 1, 2017.
