Chesapeake Utilities Corporation (Chesapeake Utilities) has announced that its natural gas transmission subsidiary, Eastern Shore Natural Gas Company (Eastern Shore), submitted a request to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) on 12 May 2016 to initiate FERC's pre-filing procedures for Eastern Shore's proposed 2017 expansion project.

The 2017 expansion project consists of:

  • Approximately 33 miles of pipeline looping in Pennsylvania, Maryland and Delaware.
  • Upgrades to existing metering facilities.
  • Installation of an additional 3550 hp compressor unit at the existing Daleville compressor station in Chester County, Pennsylvania.
  • Approximately 17 miles of new mainline extension and the addition of two pressure control stations in Sussex County, Delaware.

The proposed 2017 expansion project facilities will provide up to an aggregate of 86 437 Dth/d of additional firm natural gas transportation capacity to meet anticipated market demand.

Eastern Shore intends to file its certificate application for the 2017 expansion project with the FERC approximately 180 days after FERC approval to commence the pre-filing review process. Such filing is anticipated to occur in November 2016. Subject to the FERC's approval and issuance of the certificate, Eastern Shore intends to commence construction of the expansion project facilities in June 2017 and to place the facilities in service in the fourth quarter of 2017.
