Constitution Pipeline

Pipeline - Planning


Location  Susquehanna -Schoharie County - United States
Announced  2/21/2012 3:11:00 PM
Completion  3/30/2015
Scope  Constitution Pipeline is a 124-mile of 30-inch designed to transport 650,000 dekatherms of natural gas per day from established Marcellus production areas in Susquehanna County of northern Pennsylvania to both New York and New England markets. The pipeline route will begin from Susquehanna County, Pa., into Broome County, N.Y., Chenango County, N.Y., Delaware County, N.Y., then will tie into the Iroquois Gas Transmission Pipeline and Tennessee gas pipeline systems in Schoharie County, NY.

Constitution Pipeline would be considered an “open access pipeline,” meaning that local municipalities or public utilities could potentially tap the line in the future to provide residential, commercial and industrial natural gas service. The Project should provide benefits to both Marcellus producers and consumers of natural gas along the Eastern Seaboard.

Development Milestones

Study
2/1/2013 Constitution Pipeline Company projects to spend about $683 million during the pipeline project’s initial three year planning and building process. Some of the investment to be spent on specialized labor and materials brought in from outside the region, leaving approximately $188 million (28%) of the investment to benefit the five county region. The economic impact of the pipeline investment will be realized in two phases, the construction and the operations.

Contracts
2/21/2012 Cabot entered as a new joint venture with Williams Partners L.P. with 25% interest to develop and construct the pipeline.
4/18/2012 Constitution Pipeline Company requested to commence the pre-filing process from Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) initiate an environmental review of the pipeline project. FERC pre-filing, is designed to solicit early input from citizens, governmental entities and other interested parties to identify and address issues associated with potential facility locations during the design stage of a proposed project.
4/24/2012 Cabot Oil & Gas committed to transport 500,000 dt/day (dekatherms per day) to Constitution Pipeline, while Southwestern Energy Services Company, a subsidiary of Southwestern Energy Company agreed to transport 150,000 dt/day for a total takeaway capacity of 650,000 dt/day.
11/13/2012 Piedmont Natural Gas, through its wholly owned subsidiary Piedmont Constitution Pipeline Company LLC, joined Williams Partners L.P. and Cabot Oil and Gas Corporation as a 24% equity participant in the joint venture, and will invest an estimated $180 million in the project.
12/20/2012 The recipients of the inaugural Constitution Pipeline Community Grant program awarded nearly $300,000 to benefit local communities within the counties traversed by the proposed pipeline project. Grants were awarded based on overall community need and merit of the proposal. Examples of eligible projects included emergency/first responder support, youth or senior services, education programs, assistance in the enrichment of wildlife habitat and promotion of environmental education. Constitution Pipeline plans to distribute grant awards twice per year, with the next funding cycle’s deadline scheduled for March 15, 2013.
1/22/2013 Iroquois Gas Transmission System and Constitution Pipeline will develop the Wright Interconnect Project (WIP), an expansion of Iroquois’ existing compression and metering facilities in Wright, NY. The WIP will deliver up to 650 mmcfd from Constitution Pipeline’s end Schoharie County, NY, into both Iroquois and the Tennessee Gas Pipeline under a 15-year capacity lease agreement with Constitution. Leasing WIP capacity from Iroquois will allow Constitution to eliminate its proposed compression facility, reducing its impact on the environment and Wright, NY.
