Tennessee Gas Pipeline Northeast Energy Direct (NED) Project

Tennessee Gas Pipeline Company, L.L.C. (TGP), a subsidiary of Kinder Morgan Energy Partners, L.P., proposes the Tennessee Gas Pipeline Northeast Energy Direct Project to upgrade its existing pipeline system in New York, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Connecticut.  This project is a combination of TGP’s proposed  Pennsylvania to Wright, N.Y. and  Wright, N.Y. to Dracut, Mass. projects.

The proposed Pennsylvania to Wright, N.Y. portion of the project includes the construction of approximately 117 miles of greenfield pipeline from the existing TGP line in Susquehanna County, Pa., northeast to the existing TGP line in Schoharie County, N.Y.  The project also includes the construction of 23-mile and 28-mile loops along the existing TGP line in Bradford and Susquehanna counties in Pennsylvania.  Additionally, this will include the upgrade of an existing compressor station in Susquehanna County and construction of two new compressor stations, one in Delaware County, N.Y., and one in Schoharie County.

The proposed Wright, N.Y. to Dracut, Mass. segment would result in the construction of approximately 50 miles of pipeline co-located with TGP’s existing system and 129 miles of greenfield pipeline, additional meter stations and compressor stations, and modifications to existing facilities in New York, Massachusetts, Connecticut and New Hampshire.

The Northeast Energy Direct Project is developed to meet increased demand in the northeast United States for transportation capacity for natural gas, which is a clean, environ­mentally friendly energy source produced domestically.  Pending receipt of all necessary regulatory approvals, the proposed project is estimated to be placed in service by November 2018, in order that the additional gas supplies are available for the 2018-2019 winter heating season.
