The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission allowed National Fuel Gas Supply Corp. to begin service on its natural gas replacement and transportation project for its New York system.
FERC granted in an Oct. 16 letter the request from the National Fuel Gas Co. subsidiary to place into service Line T2KNY and the East Eden and North Boston meter and regulator stations in Erie County, N.Y. The project, which received a certificate order in September 2016 and authorization to build in May, would create approximately 2,600 Dth/d of additional firm transportation capacity while replacing bare-steel pipeline with coated-steel line. Some of the incidental capacity from the project will go to service obligations.
National Fuel applied for the project in April 2016. At the time of the application, the project was expected to cost an estimated $29.4 million. (FERC docket CP16-125)
