Dominion Transmission Inc. received FERC approval for its Clarington project under a request filed in June 2014. Upon completion, the project will enable Dominion to provide an additional 250,000 Dth/d of firm transportation capacity, which has been contracted for by Consol Energy, under a 15-year precedent agreement.

The project involves construction of two new 10,000-hop compressors at the Mullet Compressor Station in Monroe County, OH and an additional 6,000 hp of compression at the Burch Ridge Compressor Station in Marshall County, WV.

Williams placed a major expansion of its Transco natural gas pipeline into service in Virginia ain order to fuel new electric-power generation in North Carolina.

The $300 million Virginia Southside Expansion provides 270,000 dth/d of incremental transportation capacity, enough gas to serve the equivalent of 1.6 million households. The expansion consists of about 100 miles of new, 24-inch pipeline extending from the Transco mainline in Pittsylvania County, VA and into Halifax, Charlotte and Mecklenburg. It terminates in Brunswick County, VA.

Steelhead LNG struck a pre-construction agreement with pipeline developer Williams to design and gain regulatory approvals for the Island Gas Connector Project, a proposed natural gas pipeline to Vancouver Island.

The pipeline would transport natural gas 33 miles from Williams’ Northwest Pipeline’s interconnect with Spectra Energy’s BC Pipeline system at Sumas, WA to Cherry Point, WA. From there, it would travel 47 miles subsea, landing directly to the proposed Malahat LNG Project on the island.

HELSINKI (AP) — Maersk Oil says it has permission from British authorities to develop a gas field off the British coast in the largest find in the North Sea in a decade.

The Danish company said Monday the Culzean field, discovered in 2008, has an estimated 250 to 300 MMBBls of oil equivalent, or enough to produce about 5% of Britain's total gas demand at peak production in 2020-2021.

Production is expected to start in 2019 and continue for at least 13 years. Maersk Oil, JX Nippon and BP (Britoil) are investing $4.5 billion in the development.

With oil prices now dipping close to six-year lows, the energy sector is getting thumped across the board.

The double-dip will likely cause fresh cuts to spending, drilling, and staff. Last week, Baker Hughes reported a surprise uptick in the number of rigs drilling in North America, which jumped by 10 to 884 for the week ending on August 7.

Columbia Gulf Transmission’s Rayne Xpress Expansion (RXE) is designed to expand capacity on Columbia Gulf’s existing mainline pipeline system by 621 MMcf/d in a north-to-south direction. It runs from Leach, KY to the Gulf Mainline pool, located just south of Inverness Compressor Station in Humphreys County, MS.

While the project itself consists only of capacity generated by two new compression stations in Kentucky, backhaul agreements along the existing mainline bring the reversal capacity to 1.05 Bcf/d.

Kinder Morgan began a binding open season to solicit interest for the proposed Mier-Monterrrey Pipeline Expansion project, which would increase transportation capacity 700 MMcf/d through looping of the existing pipeline from the U.S.-Mexico border to Huinalá, Nuevo León, Mexico, and a new lateral from Pesquería, Nuevo León, Mexico, to Escobedo, Nuevo León, Mexico.

MarkWest Energy Partners and the Energy & Minerals Group announced the development of a new, large-scale dry gas gathering system to strategically expand the parties’ leading midstream position in the Utica Shale.

The extensive system will be underpinned by a long-term, fee-based contract with Ascent Resources-Utica, a subsidiary of Ascent Resources. Ascent is one of the largest pure-play Appalachian E&P companies with about 280,000 net acres in the prolific Utica and Marcellus shale plays.

Howard Midstream Energy Partners (HEP) said due to a successful open season construction will move forward on the Nueva Era Pipeline, a 50-50 joint venture between HEP and Mexico-based energy and services firm Grupo Clisa.

The project will connect HEP’s existing Webb County Hub in South Texas directly to Escobedo, Nuevo León, Mexico, and to the Mexican National Pipeline System (Sistema de Transporte Nacional Integrado) in Monterrey, Mexico.

Wood Group has been awarded a three-year offshore engineering blanket order by Pemex for field development in Mexico’s Gulf of Mexico waters. The $28 million agreement encompasses deepwater and complex shallow water concept and basic engineering, and owner engineer services.

Work will be performed by Wood Group Kenny and Wood Group Mustang and will include field development planning and engineering of topsides facilities, subsea umbilicals, risers and flowlines (SURF), and floating systems.
