Tennessee Gas looks to expand exports to Mexico with paperwork changes

Tennessee Gas Pipeline Co. is hoping to increase the capacity of two border crossing pipelines that export natural gas supplies from the U.S. to Mexico.

The Kinder Morgan Inc. company submitted two applications to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission asking for paperwork changes that would allow it to export nearly 400,000 Dth/d more gas to Mexico in response to potential customer growth.

"Modifying Tennessee's existing ... authorization and presidential permit would update and align Tennessee's existing authorizations with the operational capability of its cross-border facilities," Tennessee Gas said in the Dec. 20 filings.

Tennessee Gas asked FERC to amend both the certificate order and presidential permit for its Pemex border crossing facilities to let it increase import/export capacity to about 468 MMcf/d from 185,000 Dth/d. The update would reflect the maximum daily throughput capability of the meter at a connection to Pemex Gas & Basic Petrochemicals.

The Pemex border crossing facilities include nearly 500 feet of 24-inch-diameter pipeline, which interconnects with facilities operated by Pemex. (FERC docket CP99-28)

Tennessee Gas also requested FERC issue a limited amendment to the presidential permit for its Rio Bravo border crossing facilities in order. While the commission's certificate order for the project did not specify a volume limitation for the pipeline, the presidential permit capped the facilities at 320,000 Dth/d. The company wants the permit to reflect a maximum daily import and export capacity of 420 MMcf/d, which matches the daily throughput capacity of the meter at a connection in Mexico with Mexican gas company Gasoducto Del Rio, S.A. De C.V.

The Rio Bravo facilities consist of about 1,000 feet of 30-inch-diameter pipeline running from Tennessee Gas' Rio Bravo lateral to the midpoint of the Rio Grande. There they interconnect with facilities operated by Gasoducto. (FERC docket CP02-117)

The company does not propose any new construction or modifications to existing facilities. Kinder Morgan has also sought to increase capacity at another border-crossing facility exporting gas to Mexico in July, although FERC has not yet issued a decision on the request. (FERC docket CP17-474)

Tennessee Gas asked for expedited approval for its amended applications. (FERC dockets CP18-35, CP18-36)
