FERC OK’s 2 Broad Run Expansion Requests

Posted on

FERC has approved Kinder Morgan’s following requests associated with the Broad Run Expansion Project.

  • Installing sheet piling along Berry Lane, the access road leading to Compressor Station 119A, in Kanawha County, West Virginia in order to stabilize a section of the roadway where the condition of this road is not adequate to allow for the passage of heavy construction equipment.
  • Shifting the location of the property fence for Compressor Station 119A at two separate locations, including the associated 15-foot-wide construction and operation footprints needed to install and maintain the property fence.

The Broad Run Expansion Project includes two new compressor stations in Kanawha County, West Virginia, one new compressor station in Davidson County, Tennessee, and one new compressor station in Madison County, Kentucky. Kinder Morgan also will increase compression capacity by modifying two of its existing compressor stations in Powell and Boyd counties in Kentucky by replacing existing capacity with new, higher-rated horsepower compression units. Once completed, the project will provide an incremental 200,000 dekatherms per day (Dth/d) of firm transportation capacity along the same capacity path as the Broad Run Flexibility project, which was placed in service on Nov. 1, 2015.

The project is expected to be in service in June 2018.
