UGIES To Further Expand Auburn Gathering System

Posted on

UGI Energy Services LLC (UGIES), a wholly-owned subsidiary of UGI Corp., announced the further expansion of its Auburn Gathering System with the construction of a new 9-mile, 24-inch pipeline from Susquehanna County to the Manning Compressor Station in Wyoming County along with additional compression to be installed at Manning. The new pipeline, called the Auburn Loop, will parallel the existing 12-inch Auburn I Pipeline. The expanded system will increase the capacity of the Auburn Gathering System by approximately 200,000 Dth/d, bringing the total capacity of the system to 470,000 Dth/d. Deliveries will be available starting in the fall of 2014 with the balance of capacity becoming available in the fall of 2015.
  UGIES also announced the construction of a separate 6-mile, 12-inch pipeline to move locally-produced natural gas to UGI Penn Natural Gas Inc. (UGI PNG), one of UGI’s utilities in northeast Pennsylvania. Once this lateral pipeline, which will run from Clifford Township and terminate in Union Dale Borough, is placed into service, Marcellus Shale gas will be the predominant source of supply for UGI PNG customers. The Union Dale Lateral will be capable of moving up to 100,000 Dth/d with deliveries available by the fall of 2014.
