On April 21, 2022, Tennessee Gas Pipeline Company, L.L.C. (TGP), a Kinder Morgan company, received its certificate from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) for its East 300 Upgrade Project.
The East 300 Upgrade Project will increase natural gas capacity on the existing TGP pipeline system by 115,000 dekatherms per day (Dth/day) to meet the specified market need of the Project shipper, Consolidated Edison Company of New York, Inc. In addition, the increased transportation capacity and access to the natural gas supplies supported by the Project will help eliminate capacity constraints in the region, especially during periods of peak demand, ensuring that the area is able to meet residential, commercial, and industrial heating and cooling needs.
To make this possible, the East 300 Upgrade Project involves modifications to an existing compressor station in Susquehanna County, Pennsylvania, and an existing compressor station in Sussex County, New Jersey. It also includes the construction of one new electric-driven compressor station along TGP’s existing 300 Line in the Township of West Milford in Passaic County, New Jersey. The proposed site for the new compressor station is a previously disturbed industrial parcel, formerly used as a quarry and other industrial and commercial purposes.
TGP has started construction on two of the three compressor stations involved in East 300 Upgrade project. TGP expects to file for a Notice to Proceed from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) for the remaining compressor station in the first quarter of 2023. Pending receipt of all required permits, the project has an expected in-service date of November 1, 2023.
