Pipeline Cathodic Protection News: New Spectra Natural Gas Pipeline Construction

Pipeline cathodic protection industry received a boost this week: proposed high-volume natural gas pipeline construction across 3 Southeastern states. Spectra, the company behind this jolt of economic opportunity, has dubbed it the “Renaissance Project”. The natural gas pipeline proposes several lines branching off the main pipeline to potential customers along the route.

The pipeline is a complex project and will require a number of business services such as pipeline cathodic protection. MATCOR’s pipeline protection program uses a number ISO 9001:2008-certified solutions to protect such a project. For example, MATCOR’s SPL™-FBR linear Anode and Durammo™ Deep Anode System would help lower total cost of ownership on the pipeline.

The proposed pipeline is almost 300 miles with three different pipeline diameters. The natural gas pipeline will feature two compressor stations to maintain line pressures, according to officials. It was stated the line will have a capacity of 1 billion cubic feet per day, and can be expanded to over 1.5 billion cubic feet per day.

Spectra plans for the pipeline to run from the Chattanooga, Tennessee area, through Alabama and towards the Atlanta, Georgia area. “We are continuing to work with multiple potential customers to design a project to fit their supply demand needs,” Grover said in a statement on the project.

Furthermore, Spectra executed letter of intent with the AGL, the parent company of Chattanooga Gas Co., and Atlanta Gas Light Co.to explore a joint arrangement for local distribution. Sources close to the matter state the “Renaissance Project” could be up and running by mid-2017.

“From a project kickoff standpoint, we continue to reach out to federal, state and local public officials informing them of the project,” she said. “We’ll send letters and start contacting landowners along our proposed study corridor pending further market feedback.” Grover stated Spectra the Renaissance Project study corridor map is in the final stages. Currently, the map highlights 15 counties across Tennessee, Alabama and Georgia.

Economic groups across these states laud the move as one that will stimulate the economy and bring jobs to the region. “It’s going to be a good project and the infrastructure for natural gas is such that, industry-wide, there’s a great demand for it,” one source familiar with the matter said. Experts familiar with the project say it is a crucial move to support industrial expansion and business growth in the region.

 

MATCOR’s Insight That Works

The Renaissance pipeline is indeed poetically named. The Southeastern region has recently seen improvements to its economic state and industrial competitiveness. However, key investments such as the natural gas pipeline and other infrastructure must be put in place to attract jobs, manufacturers and families into these committees. That said, the pipeline is a key cog to the continued rebirth of this region. MATCOR and other service providers will be stewards of this bright future, protecting valuable assets that power communities.

Florida Power & Light Proposes 600 Miles Of Natural Gas Pipelines

If Florida Power & Light get the green light from state regulators, they will be pumping natural gas within four years and transporting the fuel hundreds of miles on a proposed pipeline  between Southwest Alabama and Martin County, Florida.

This is a two-part project. The northern pipeline will stretch roughly 465 miles from Alabama to a hub in Central Florida. From there, a second line will run 126 miles to an FPL plant in Martin County.  This project is in partnership with Spectra Energy Corp., and NextEra Energy.  Specific information about this pipeline project in Florida can be found here.

“This project has a central Florida hub that interconnects the existing pipeline system in Florida, the Florida Gas Transmission pipeline and the Gulfstream pipeline,” said FPL Vice President Mike Sole, “so that we also significantly improve the reliability of the pipeline infrastructure in Florida.”

The existing pipeline capacity is almost full, so FPL solicited proposals from companies to construct the pipelines. Two companies were chosen, and they will spend an estimated $3.6 billion to do the work.

Sole says Florida Power & Light won’t pay construction costs, but it will pay rent – essentially buying the right to move gas along the line.

“We hope and expect to begin construction in 2016 and complete that construction and actually begin using the pipeline in 2017,” Sole said. “We expect to see some 8,600 direct and indirect jobs associated with construction of this pipeline.”

Florida Power & Light has to go through a lot of permitting at the federal, state and local level.

This process actually started in 2009 when the company offered up a very different proposal. The Florida Public Service Commission (PSC) rejected the pipeline proposal and told Florida Power & Light to come up with something more cost effective. That led to the current proposal.

Tom Ballinger, director of engineering for the PSC, can’t comment on whether this new proposal will be approved. But he can talk about the potential impact.

“It’s a very highly regulated industry on the safety and the construction aspects of it. Obviously to build a large infrastructure project like this is going to take many years, many jobs,” Ballinger said. “It’s going to be a huge impact on Florida’s economy. We are the second largest consumer of natural gas in the United States – Texas being the first, California actually below us.”

About two-thirds of the electricity FPL supplies to Floridians is produced by natural gas.

Natural Gas Transmission Pipelines & Safety: Major Washington Expansion

The Washington State natural gas transmission pipelines and safety landscape received a big announcement this week. Multiple sections of pipeline in Washington will be expanded, according to federal filings by Northwest Williams Pipeline.

The current gas transmission pipelines are 30 inches. The proposed expansion will place 36 inch pipeline next to the old 30 inch pipeline. The construction, expected in early 2017, will also create continuity between existing 36 inch pipeline. The pipeline expansion is a perquisite for a new liquefied natural gas (LNG) export station in Astoria. The project will encompass a wide range of work, including natural gas pipeline safety and protection.

In total, the pipeline project will span 140 miles from the Oregon state and Canadian national borders. The Oregon Pipeline Company will connect the southern expansion into Oregon through an installation underground the Columbia River. The finished product is LNG that will be shipped to Asia from the Astoria natural gas terminal.

Northwest Williams Pipeline estimates the project cost at $870 million. Upon completion, the pipeline will be made available to other customers in the Northwest, including Washington and Oregon. The company also stated it expects the pipeline to generate over $10 million in property taxes, per year across Washington.

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) received the application request in June. FERC officials have announced the plan will be reviewed in tandem with the Oregon LNG pipeline plans.

 

MATCOR’s Insight That Works

The proposed pipeline expansion holds a great deal of promise for all involved. The Astoria LNG terminal is poised to service rapidly expanding markets in Asia.  Northwest Williams Pipeline will help bring a great deal of economic benefit to Washington. At the same time, the project is highly complex by joining multiple existing pipeline sections. Natural gas pipeline safety and pipe protection are large concerns. The company is making a large investment that will require expert cathodic protection to secure continued profit. Technology such as linear SPL anodes could make a huge impact for Northwest Williams Pipeline.

Natural Gas Pipeline Construction Complete: Permian Basin and Eagle Ford Pipelines Begin Service

Major Permian Basin and Eagle Ford pipelines have begun service, it was announced today. DCP Midstream, Phillips 66 and Spectra Energy have completed the natural gas pipeline construction and own a one-third interest in the pipeline entities.

Quick Facts:

– The 720-mile Sand Hills NGL Pipeline is transporting natural gas liquids (NGLs) from production in the Permian Basin and Eagle Ford Shale.

– The 800-mile Southern Hills NGL Pipeline is transporting NGLs from production in the Midcontinent.

“Sand Hills and Southern Hills provide a solution to the critical need for vital transportation capacity from key liquids producing regions,” said Wouter van Kempen, chairman, president and chief executive officer of DCP Midstream. “DCP Midstream will have an integrated NGL pipeline system, consisting of Sand Hills and Southern Hills as well as our interests in the Front Range and Texas Express pipelines, that connect our gathering and processing systems located in most of the major liquids-rich and oil-driven shale plays to growing Gulf Coast markets. As the nation’s No. 1 NGL producer, the No. 2 natural gas gatherer and processor, and the No. 3 NGL pipeline operator, DCP Midstream can offer customers superior value and services across the midstream value chain.”

The Permian Basin and Eagle Ford NGL pipelines began taking flows in the fourth quarter of 2012 and first quarter of 2013, respectively, and are on budget and ahead of schedule.

Sand Hills NGL Pipeline

The Permian Basin and Eagle Ford NGL Pipeline provides takeaway service from DCP Midstream and third-party plants in the Permian and the Eagle Ford to fractionation facilities along the Texas Gulf Coast and the Mont Belvieu, Texas, market hub. The pipeline will ramp up to a capacity of more than 200,000 barrels per day after completion of initial pump stations. Further capacity increases to 350,000 bbl/d are possible with the installation of additional pump stations.

Sand Hills was developed to meet growing demand in the Permian and Eagle Ford, where DCP Midstream has a significant gathering and processing footprint. In the Permian, DCP Midstream is the largest producer of NGLs and has processing capacity of 1.3 billion cubic feet per day. In addition, the Rawhide Plant will add 75 million cubic feet per day of processing capacity when it goes into service in the middle of 2013. In the Eagle Ford, DCP Midstream and its master limited partnership, DCP Midstream Partners, have integrated assets that include seven processing plants, which will have processing capacity of 1.2 Bcf/d with the completion of the Goliad Plant in the first quarter of 2014.

Southern Hills NGL Pipeline

Southern Hills NGL Pipeline provides takeaway service from DCP Midstream and third-party plants in the Midcontinent to fractionation facilities along the Texas Gulf Coast and the Mont Belvieu market hub. The pipeline will ramp up to a capacity of 175,000 bbl/d after completion of planned pump stations.

This critical piece of midstream infrastructure provides improved market access for growing Midcontinent NGL production, where DCP Midstream has a leading position as a gatherer and processor with approximately 2 Bcf/d of processing capacity.

Williams Partners’ Mid-South natural gas pipeline expansion now in service

Williams Partners LP’s expansion of its interstate Transco pipeline into parts of the Southeast U.S. is completed and in service. the Tulsa-based natural gas transporter announced Monday.

The fuel is going to power generators in North Carolina and Alabama as well as a local distribution company in Georgia. The expansion’s added capacity provides enough natural gas for service to approximately one million homes, Williams Partners estimated in its release.

“This expansion represents another milestone in our build-out of Transco, the nation’s largest gas pipeline system and a significant platform for growth,” Rory Miller, Williams’ senior vice president of the Atlantic-Gulf unit, said in a statement. “We’re executing on more than $1.5 billion in additional Transco expansion projects primarily to create efficient access between the prolific natural gas production areas in the Northeast U.S. to growing demand centers in numerous Southeast and Atlantic Seaboard states.”

The Mid-South Expansion includes about 23 miles of new pipeline, a new compressor facility in Dallas County, Ala., and upgrades to existing compressor facilities in Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina.

Transco is one of three interstate pipelines owned and operated by Williams Partners. The 10,200-mile system moves natural gas from the Gulf Coast to the eastern United States. Tulsa-based Williams Cos. Inc. owns a controlling stake in Williams Partners.

Crosstex to build 3rd natural gas compressor station in Utica shale region

Crosstex Energy, which in March said it would invest $50 million in two natural gas compressor stations in Noble and Monroe counties, will spend another $25 million for a third facility in eastern Ohio, Youngstown’s Business Journal reports.

Crosstex, a midstream energy firm in Dallas, said it would make the investment in its E2 company. The facility, like the others, is supported by a long-term, fee-based contract with Denver-based Antero Resources.

The compressor stations are the sort of midstream facilities needed to move oil and gas from well sites to end users such as chemical plants, requisite infrastructure still needed in Ohio’s Utica shale play.

Marcellus Shale Gas Impact Fee Proceeds Above $400M

HARRISBURG – Gov. Tom Corbett has announced that the Marcellus Shale Impact Fee, part of Act 13, signed into law in February of 2012, has brought in more than $400 million dollars in its first two years.

“Act 13 is a law that has helped bring Pennsylvania forward both economically and environmentally,” Corbett said. “In addition to enacting some of the most rigorous environmental standards in the nation, we’ve brought in more than $400 million for our communities directly impacted by unconventional drilling, along with other environmental efforts across the state.”

“As this industry grows, benefitting all Pennsylvanians with thousands of new jobs, lower energy prices, and increased energy independence, Act 13 has played a key part in our role making sure that it grows safely and responsibly,” Corbett said.

Collections for 2012 were due to the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission (PUC) by April 1.

Nearly $198 million is expected to come into the state from the 2012 collections. This is in addition to the $204 million collected during the first round of collections. The 2012 amounts were released yesterday.

The collections this year are slightly lower than last year due mainly to the lower price of natural gas.

Information on the amount of money expected for 2012, as well as the amount of money collected to date, can be found on the Act 13 page on the PUC’s website, www.puc.pa.gov.

Bluegrass Natural Gas Pipeline – Moving Forward!

Oklahoma’s Williams (NYSE: WMB) and Houston’s Boardwalk Pipeline Partners (NYSE: BWP) have teamed up to develop a new major natural gas pipeline, named the Bluegrass Pipeline, which would cut through Kentucky and connect gas fields underneath Pennsylvania to refineries and export markets on the Gulf Coast.

That means resources from the Marcellus Shale will now be accessible by facilities in Texas and Louisiana, which can then export them around the world. Kentucky.com reports that the pipeline, once completed, would allow for the initial transport of some 200,000 barrels of natural gas liquids per day from the shale operations in Pennsylvania, Ohio, and West Virginia over to the facilities along the Coast. This capacity would later be upgraded to 400,000 barrels per day, chiefly by the addition of liquids-pumping capacity.

The venture also means wholly new facilities, both along the pipeline’s route and in the South where it terminates, would be constructed and developed, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. Roughly 40 percent of the project proposal comprises new construction and development, and this is focused largely within the Marcellus region, though no exact locations have yet been decided upon.

An interconnect in Kentucky would connect to origin points of the pipeline located in Ohio and West Virginia. Also in Kentucky, an existing system will partially be reconfigured to allow for the transportation of natural-gas liquids, Kentucky.com reports. The final route the pipeline will follow has not been determined yet.

This project comes as the latest in a series of high-profile pipeline development efforts in and near the Marcellus Shale region, as companies try to exploit the lacking American pipeline infrastructure situation by building new networks that can handle the rush of shale-derived oil and natural gas (and related products), which the existing heavy crude pipelines cannot readily do.

In fact, the situation is so complex that some Marcellus and Utica shale producers have had to slow down their operations as they wait for the pipeline network infrastructure to play catch-up. But natural gas prices have dropped even further, so developers are showing more interest in liquids derived from natural gas, like condensate, ethane, and other natural-gas liquids, Kentucky.com reports, which could be sold in numerous markets both domestic and international.

According to Williams, the present system is likely to be under too much pressure as soon as 2016, with the total volume of natural-gas liquids being produced in the Northeast projected to go over 1.2 million barrels per day by 2020.

Kentucky.com quotes Williams President and CEO, Alan Armstrong:

“We are designing Bluegrass Pipeline to provide these two world-class resource plays with access to one of the largest and most dynamic petrochemical markets in the world,” Armstrong said. “This will help producers in Ohio, Pennsylvania and West Virginia achieve an attractive value for their ethane and other liquids.”

The way Boardwalk and Williams envision this project is for the pipeline to deliver mixed natural-gas liquids from the shale zones in Ohio, W. Virginia, and Pennsylvania to numerous fractionation plants and storage centers. These have yet to be built, but they will be positioned along the pipeline’s route. They would subsequently link up with petrochem plants and end-product pipelines along the Texas and Louisiana coasts.

No costs have been cited yet, as those are part of the details still being worked out. The problem of moving the shale derivatives out of the Northeast and nearer to the refineries and other facilities is one of the U.S. shale sector’s biggest issues, and this project will undoubtedly do its part in alleviating the pressure.

Roughly 60 percent of existing pipeline can be used, according to Kentucky.com; this is mostly owned by Boardwalk, named the Texas Gas Pipeline. New construction would simply expand on this network. It would allow the project to possibly come online by or in the second half of 2015, while also keeping construction costs down.

Boardwalk has nearly 1,420 miles of natural gas pipeline networking through Western Kentucky and employs 315 out of its 1,200 employees within that state.

Prior to this development, Enterprise Products Partners LLP and Chesapeake Energy (NYSE: CHK) came up with a similar plan in 2011 to develop a pipeline that would transport ethane from the Marcellus Shale region, connecting it to refineries and facilities along the Gulf Coast. More such projects will need to be developed before the Appalachian shale bottleneck can see some real relief.

Major expansion of natural gas pipeline

$44 million project would put 5.6-mile line through Bucks County, PA.

One of MATCOR’s key clients Texas Eastern Transmission LP, is seeking federal approval of a $5.3-million expansion of its pipeline and compressor station system to distribute Marcellus shale gas produced locally by Chevron and EQT.

A subsidiary of Spectra Energy Transmission, of Houston, Texas, Texas Eastern wants to gain Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) approval in November this year and put the new pipelines into service by November 2014, according to a pre-application filing recently submitted to FERC.

The project involves installing a total of 33.6 miles of new pipeline in five counties in the state; upgrading four compressor stations in the state and other work at 41 company facilities between Pennsylvania and Mississippi.  MATCOR has the ability to provide its SPL Mixed Metal Oxide Linear Anode to cathodically protect this pipeline expansion.

“Texas Eastern’s (pipeline) runs from the Gulf of Mexico to Lambertville, N.J. This is an expansion of that system,” said Spectra spokeswoman Marylee Hanley.

Texas Eastern has agreements with Chevron and EQT to charge them for the work, which would provide both producers with the capacity to transport 300,000 additional Btu/d.

These two shippers are major producers in the Marcellus shale play need the project to ensure that pipeline capacity exists to transport their gas to markets as the production comes on line. The shippers have agreed to pay negotiated rates for the pipeline service, according to Texas Eastern’s FERC filing.

“We are an open access pipeline, which means we are required to provide service to our customers,” Hanley said.

The new pipelines would be installed adjacent to existing pipelines in existing rights of way, and all the compressor station work would be done on the stations’ existing property, she said.

Specifically, the project would transport 300,000 Btu/d of gas from western Pennsylvania to the eastern end of the system in Lambertville, N.J., and Staten Island, N.Y.; 50,000 Btu/d from western Pennsylvania to the Lebanon, Ohio, hub and 250,000 Btu/d of of gas from western Pennsylvania to markets in Mississippi and Louisiana.

In addition to providing access to markets for the producers, the project would promote commodity price competition and reduce price volatility by introducing new supply sources from the Appalachian production area, particularly the prolific Marcellus shale, to these market areas, Texas Eastern said. The project would also provide gas to developing markets in the Gulf Coast Region and improve the company’s transportation security, flexibility and reliability, according to the filing

Natural gas growth means more pipelines in Chesco

WEST CHESTER – Local officials look to Columbia Gas Transmission’s plans to install another pipeline as an inevitable progression in Chester County due to the growth of the natural gas business in Pennsylvania.

“As I’ve often said, Chester County is already pipeline-central, and their numbers are going to increase, not decrease, in the years ahead,” said State Senator Andy Dinniman, D-19th of West Whiteland. “I am not against natural gas. I am for protecting our communities, our property values and our natural resources like the Brandywine Creek against harm from companies simply looking to get their product to ports in Philadelphia, Wilmington or Baltimore – or anywhere else – as quickly as possible.”

Columbia Gas Transmission is planning to install 8.8 miles of natural gas pipeline that will travel from the Eagle Compression Station and into West Bradford.

State Senator Andy Dinniman on Friday said that the natural gas pipeline proposed for Chester County by Columbia Gas Transmission is only the latest and will certainly be followed by others as the natural gas industry moves more and more Marcellus Shale natural gas to market.

Dinniman said this is why he took the lead last year in demanding the strictest state oversight of Williams Gas Pipeline’s 7-mile pipeline replacement project, and why he is introducing a three-bill package aimed at increasing the public’s ability to stay informed about pipeline projects and at protecting people’s homes, communities, and taxpayer-funded farmland from being harmed by pipeline projects.

According to Chevalier Mayes, communications manager for NiSource Gas Transmission & Storage, the pipeline, 26 inches in diameter, will affect 180 landowners in the pipeline’s right-of-way once construction for the project begins, which is anticipated to begin in April 2015. The pipeline is expected to be operational in September of that year, and would lie adjacent to an existing pipeline which is also owned by NiSource, parent company of Columbia Gas.

Mayes also said that the expansion project is a planned response for the need to meet increased demand for additional capacity in natural gas traveling through pipelines.

Columbia’s next steps for the project will be to enter into the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission’s pre-filing process. The purpose of requesting entry into the commission’s pre-filing process is to allow stakeholder and environmental issues to be identified and resolved at earlier stages in the project’s development and planning. According to Martin Indars, spokesman for state Sen. Andy Dinniman, D-19th of West Whiteland, the pre-filing process is expected to begin later this month.

Tommy Ryan, township manager of West Bradford, said that although representatives from NiSource, the parent company of Columbia Gas, had reached out late last year to advise them of their intended pipeline, he hopes that communication will not cease there. While NiSource representatives have contacted residents in the pipeline’s Right of Way, as well as to those within 50 feet of it, Ryan said he expects regular updates from NiSource as they move through the approval and installation process. About 14 properties will be directly affected by the pipeline in West Bradford.

According to Mayes, once they have entered into the pre-filing process, Columbia representatives will notify the public through open houses and other informational events. Those types of meetings will be ongoing throughout the project until the pipeline is operational.

A toll-free number will become available at an unknown later date and company representatives will be available to answer any questions stakeholders may have.

The pipeline is part of Columbia’s Side Expansion project, which will feature looping pipelines in both Chester County and Gloucester County, N.J. The pipeline will cross wetlands and waterways in the area; however, the exact number of crossings has not yet been determined.
