TGP Pitches Northeast Energy Direct Project

Posted on

Tennessee Gas Pipeline Co. LLC (TGP) has proposed the Tennessee Gas Pipeline Northeast Energy Direct Project to upgrade its existing pipeline system in New York, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Connecticut. This project is a combination of TGP’s proposed Pennsylvania to Wright, NY and Wright, NY to Dracut, MA projects.
  The proposed Pennsylvania to Wright, NY portion of the project includes the construction of 117 miles of greenfield pipeline from the existing TGP line in Susquehanna County, PA, northeast to the existing TGP line in Schoharie County, NY. The project also includes the construction of 23-mile and 28-mile loops along the existing TGP line in Bradford and Susquehanna counties in Pennsylvania. Additionally, this will include the upgrade of an existing compressor station in Susquehanna County and construction of two new compressor stations, one in Delaware County, NY, and one in Schoharie County. The project is in its planning stages and construction is slated for 2018.
