Southern Natural Gas Company (SNG) and The Elba Express Company recently completed successful open seasons for incremental, long term gas transportation capacity of almost 600 MMcf/d. The success of the open seasons attracted interest in further phasing of an expansion of up to 400 MMcf/d, which would bring the total expansion to as much as 1 billion cf/d. The north-to-south expansion capacity including interconnects and delivery points with SNG and other pipelines and shippers, is expected to become available in phases, with service commencing as early as June 2016 and all phases in service by about April 2019. The total capital expected to be invested by SNG and EEC to accommodate the initial phase of 600 MMcf/d is in excess of $200 million.
