Columbia Gulf gets OK from FERC to put Ky. Gulf XPress facilities in service

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission cleared Columbia Gulf Transmission LLC's request to start service on Gulf XPress project facilities at a Kentucky compressor station.

The Columbia Gas Transmission LLC affiliate's approximately $674 million Gulf XPress project is expected to provide up to 860,000 Dth/d of firm transportation service from an existing interconnection with Columbia Gas to delivery points on its system. Once in service, the project would provide bidirectional compression on its Line 200 and Line 300 with seven new compressor stations and modifications to a previously authorized compressor station and an existing meter station. FERC gave Columbia Gulf permission to begin building the project in January.

FERC approved the Gulf XPress project, along with Columbia Gas' $2 billion-plus Mountaineer XPress project, in late December 2017. The two pipeline projects would provide up to 2.7 MMDth/d of incremental transportation capacity between the Northeast and the Gulf Coast. Columbia Gas and Columbia Gulf are part of Columbia Pipeline Group Inc., a TransCanada Corp. subsidiary. (FERC dockets CP16-361, CP16-357)
