YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – Tennessee Gas Pipeline Co. LLC plans to construct a compressor station in Mahoning County as part of its $412 million Abandonment and Capacity Restoration Project.

Notice of the company’s intent was filed April 17 with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. New compressor stations would also be built in Jackson, Morgan and Tuscarawas counties, the company said.

The proposed locations for the compressor stations were not disclosed in the document, only that “about 105.3 acres of land would be disturbed by the construction of new compressor stations” and that once in operations the facilities would operate on a “combined 60.3 acres.”

The compressor stations are described a “mid-point” facilities.

Tennessee Gas Pipeline Co. plans to abandon and remove from service 964 miles of pipelines that run from Natchitoches Parish, La., to Columbiana County. The company operates six parallel pipelines that transport natural gas from the Gulf of Mexico region to Northeast markets.

If the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission approves abandonment of the company’s pipeline facilities, the company says it would disconnect and transfer the abandoned lines and associated facilities to Utica Marcellus Texas Pipeline LLC, which would convert them to transport natural gas liquids.

The document filed with the federal agency is a notice of the company’s intent to prepare an environmental assessment for the Abandonment and Capacity Restoration Project. The notice requires comments to be submitted by May 18.
