TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — The state's Board of Public Utilities has approved two amendments to an earlier order authorizing a natural gas pipeline in southern New Jersey.

The board greenlighted Wednesday the amendments concerning the proposed nearly 22-mile pipeline from Maurice River Township to Upper Township.

It's the latest in South Jersey Gas' efforts to move forward with the project that has been on hold amid environmental concerns because the pipeline runs through part of the state's Pinelands preserve.

Kinder Morgan announced Thursday its board of directors authorized subsidiary, Tennessee Gas Pipeline Company (TGP), to proceed with the $3.3 billion Northeast Energy Direct (NED) project's “market path” segment from Wright, NY too Dracut, MA.

Vaquero Midstream is moving forward on its gas-gathering and processing project in the Southern Delaware Basin. The company selected a site in Pecos County near the Waha Hub and the Lone Star NGL pipeline.

Additionally, Vaquero anticipates building an extensive gathering footprint in the area, with over 100 miles of 8- to 30-inch pipeline, connected to central delivery points on producers’ acreage blocks. The company plans to complete construction of the plant and gathering system over the next 12 months with the complex in operation by mid-2016.

BP Exploration & Production awarded Technip a lump sum project for the design, engineering, fabrication, installation and pre-commissioning of the new production pipeline systems on the south side of the Thunder Horse production drilling quarters unit.

At a water depth of 1,900 meters, the field development is located in Mississippi Canyon Blocks 778 and 822, in the ultra-deepwater Gulf of Mexico environment.

The North Dakota Public Service Commission unanimous backed a Hess Corp. crude oil pipeline that will run under Lake Sakakawea. The $105 million project will convert an 8-inch pipeline to transfer Bakken crude oil along a 2.4 mile section of pipe buried 6 feet under the lake bottom in 1992.

Enterprise Products Partners L.P. has executed long-term agreements that support development of a 416-mile, 24-inch pipeline to transport crude oil and condensate from the company’s Midland, TX terminal to its Sealy storage facility west of Houston.

From Sealy, the new pipeline would link to Enterprise’s ECHO terminal through an interconnect with the Rancho II pipeline, which is scheduled to be in service shortly. Through ECHO, customers will have direct access to every refinery in Houston, Texas City, Beaumont and Port Arthur as well as Enterprise’s dock facilities.

Tall Oak Midstream, LLC is constructing an oil gathering, storage and transportation system to serve producers in Oklahoma’s Sooner Trend (STACK) play. Tall Oak is already gathering and processing natural gas on its STACK system for multiple customers.

Anchored by a long-term agreement with Felix Energy, LLC, the system will connect to multiple downstream pipelines that provide direct access to the market center at Cushing, OK. Tall Oak expects to bring the system into service later this year.

TransCanada has received the first two permits from the British Columbia Oil & Gas Commission (OGC), approving construction for two sections of the 560-mile Prince Rupert Gas Transmission (PRGT) project in northern British Columbia. The approvals are for sections that extend from 12.4 miles NW of Hudson's Hope to 30 miles north of Fort St. James and total about 155 miles.

Sunoco Logistics Partners announced June 4 plans to build an additional pipeline to deliver Marcellus Shale products to Marcus Hook, reflecting a growing market for liquid fuels derived from the region's shale drilling.

The Philadelphia Inquirer reported Sunoco Logistics said it intends to build two pipelines simultaneously as part of its Mariner East 2 project. The project, announced in November, is the second phase of a plan to move materials including propane, butane, and ethane from Appalachian shale-gas fields to the Marcus Hook Industrial Complex southwest of Philadelphia.

Wood Group has secured a $1 million contract with Origin Energy to provide detailed design engineering for the onshore pipelines related to the Halladale, Black Watch & Speculant (HBWS) Natural Gas Project in South West Victoria, Australia.

The HBWS gas fields are located in the offshore Otway Basin in Victoria but due to their proximity to shore, and to avoid sensitive marine environments, they are being drilled using extended reach drilling (ERD) techniques from onshore location and tied back to the existing Otway Gas Plant.
