El Paso Corporation (EP) announced that its subsidiary, Tennessee Gas Pipeline Company, has received Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) approval for its 300 Line Project. 

"We are very pleased to receive FERC approval for an important project that will make significant new Appalachian supplies available to Tennessee Gas Pipeline customers," said Bryan Neskora, senior vice president and chief commercial officer of Tennessee Gas Pipeline Company. "This expansion, along with our Northeast Upgrade project, represents approximately $1 billion of projects that will provide much needed infrastructure related to the development of Marcellus Shale and Appalachian natural gas supplies." 

The 300 Line Project, fully subscribed under a 15-year contract, is scheduled to be in service in November 2011. It involves the looping of approximately 127 miles of 30-inch pipeline in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, and the addition of approximately 55,000 horsepower with the installation of two new compressor stations and upgrades at seven existing compressor stations.
