The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission gave Steel Reef Pipelines US LLC authorizations to site, construct and operate a natural gas import and export project at the border between the U.S. and Canada.
FERC on Aug. 6 granted the Steel Reef Infrastructure Corp. subsidiary a presidential permit and Natural Gas Act authorization to build the 250-feet South Saskatchewan access pipeline and associated infrastructure to move up to 30 MMcf/d of gas across the U.S. and Canada international border. The project cleared the commission's environmental assessment. FERC found that the project would not pose a significant threat to the human environment.
FERC gave Steel Reef Pipelines a year to complete and place the facilities in service. The company applied to FERC for the project in December 2017. (FERC docket CP18-24)
