FERC has approved Kinder Morgan’s request to begin construction activities associated with the Triad Expansion Project in Susquehanna County, Pennsylvania and the construction of new Compressor Stations 118A and 119A in Kanawha County, West Virginia for the Broad Run Expansion Project.
The Triad Expansion Project involves construction 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 in service on Nov. 1, 2017.
The Broad Run Expansion Project involves the construction of 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 expects to 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.
