Orion Project

On October 9, 2015, Tennessee Gas Pipeline Company, L.L.C. (TGP), a subsidiary of Kinder Morgan, Inc., filed an application with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) for its proposed and fully subscribed Orion Project. The project consists of approximately 13 miles of pipeline looping, (i.e., installation of additional pipe adjacent to and connecting with the existing pipeline), in Pike and Wayne counties, Pennsylvania. In addition, TGP made minor modifications to one existing compressor station in Pike County, Pennsylvania. No new compression was required for the Project.

The Project received its FERC certificate on Feb. 2, 2017.

A number of federal and state agencies were involved with the approval and oversight of the project, including the FERC, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

The approximately $104 million Orion Project provides 135,000 dekatherms per day of capacity for three customers, and deliveries under the long-term contracts begin on June 1, 2018.
