NGPL moves forward with Chicago Market expansion project

Natural Gas Pipeline Co. of America LLC (NGPL) reported it has signed binding agreements with Antero Resources, Nicor Gas, North Shore Gas, and Occidental Energy Marketing Inc. for incremental firm transportation service on its Gulf Coast mainline system from the Rockies Express Pipeline (REX) interconnection in Moultrie County, Ill., to points north on NGPL’s pipeline system.

These commitments will support the first phase of NGPL’s Chicago Market expansion project, which will increase NGPL’s capacity by 238,000 dth/day and provide transportation service to the Chicago area. The contracts are for an average term of over 11 years.

“This phase of the expansion project meets the current natural gas transportation needs of the Chicago-area markets and Northeast producers by providing competitive rates from the expanded REX interconnection to the Chicago area,” said NGPL Pres. David Devine.

NGPL intends to file a 7(c) certificate application with the US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission in June, with the project expected to be in service in November 2016.
