Last week Enbridge, owners of the Texas Eastern Transmission Company (Tetco) pipeline, filed documents with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission showing that Phase II of its Texas Eastern Appalachian Lease (TEAL) Project began service on April 1st. The TEAL project connects to and feeds Utica Shale gas to the NEXUS pipeline.
In August 2017, Enbridge received approval (a certificate) from FERC to construct and operate TEAL, which boosts capacity along the Tetco pipeline and connects it to NEXUS. TEAL will bump up volumes of Utica/Marcellus gas along Tetco by an extra 950 million cubic feet per day (MMcf/d)–nearly 1 billion cubic feet! The markets for the gas are the Midwest and Canada.
On December 19, 2017, Tetco received approval to proceed with construction of the Phase I TEAL Project facilities. In June 2018, Tetco requested and received permission to begin Phase II in Columbiana and Belmont counties in Ohio (see FERC Authorizes Tetco TEAL Phase II – Connecting to NEXUS Pipe).
Phase I of TEAL went online last October (see Tetco TEAL Pipe Partial Start Up, Feeding NEXUS Pipe).
And now, Phase II is online, meaning the full 950 MMcf/d of gas is flowing to NEXUS.
