FERC to review environmental impact of Tricor Ten Section Hub

On February 25, 2010, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) issued a Notice of Schedule for its environmental review of Tricor Ten Section Hub, LLC's (Tricor) proposed natural gas storage project near Bakersfield, California. 

As the lead agency responsible for assessing the environmental impact of Tricor's project, the FERC accepts input from other agencies with jurisdiction over various aspects of the project. In its Notice of Schedule, the FERC indicated it will issue an Environmental Assessment (EA) of the project by May 26, 2010. 

The Ten Section Natural Gas Storage Project will be centrally located near the backbone systems of major western US pipelines, and will have more than 4 billion cubic feet (Bcf) of interstate and intrastate pipeline capacity surrounding it. 

The Ten Section Hub facility is designed to hold 22.4 Bcf of working gas, with 10.1 Bcf of base gas, and will offer customers four-turn, high-speed deliverability. Ten Section Hub will offer 1 Bcf per day of withdrawal service and 0.8 Bcf per day of injection service. 

As a result, Tricor's 32.5 Bcf high-speed natural gas storage facility will significantly improve the overall efficiency and effectiveness of the Western interstate gas transportation network.
