(PGJ) – The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) approved full-service for the Mountaineer XPress (MXP) project, allowing TransCanada to increase the flow of gas and begin operating its Gulf XPress (GXP) project.
TransCanada President and CEO Russ Girling called the two developments “extremely important” to the company, adding, the projects “provide much-needed takeaway capacity for our customers, while also growing our extensive footprint in the Appalachian Basin.”
The MXP project comprises 170 miles of 36-inch pipeline, three new compressor stations and modifications to three existing compressor stations.
The pipeline is capable of providing 2.7 Bcf/d of natural gas to the TCO Pool and Leach markets on the Columbia Gas Transmission System. MXP is underpinned by long-term contracts with customers.
