In response to the growing needs of its customers in northeast British Columbia, Spectra Energy Corp (SE ) announced open seasons to assess customer requirements for expanded transportation service on its Transportation North (T-North) system, and for raw gas gathering and processing service in the Fort Nelson resource area.
Transportation Services Open Season
Interested parties are invited to respond to a binding open season for up to 200 million cubic feet per day (mmcf/d) of firm transportation service from Spectra Energy's Fort Nelson Gas Plant to existing and proposed delivery points into the NOVA Gas transmission system. The planned expansion has a targeted in-service date of January, 2012.
"Spectra Energy's Fort Nelson mainline is a critical part of the natural gas transportation system in northeast British Columbia and is strategically positioned to provide take-away capacity from active producing areas," said Rob Whitwham, vice president, pipeline, Spectra Energy Transmission West. "We are offering new pipeline capacity to meet the rising demand for transportation service in the region."
Spectra Energy is also seeking non-binding expressions of interest for incremental transportation capacity required in 2012 or thereafter, between any receipt and delivery points on the T-North system.
Raw Gas Gathering and Processing Open Season
In addition, in response to continued customer interest and significant producer expectations for continued growth in shale gas production from the Fort Nelson resource area, the company is seeking non-binding expressions of interest for the expansion of raw gas transmission service and processing service at its Fort Nelson Gas Plant and its recently approved Fort Nelson North Processing Facility.
"We are holding this open season to evaluate the needs and timing requirements for additional raw gas gathering and processing services in the Fort Nelson area," said Duane Rae, vice president, field services, Spectra Energy Transmission West.
