TransCanada ANR East Project Brochure


Published on

Information about a new pipeline project from TransCanada that will connect to their existing ANR Pipeline--something they call the ANR East Project. The new project will deliver Marcellus and Utica Shale gas to markets in the Midwest, Gulf Coast and Canada. The non-binding open season runs until July 28. The project, if built, will go online in 3Q17.

TransCanada ANR East Project Brochure

  1. 1. TransCanada ANR East Pipeline Project Providing transportation for emerging Utica supplies to access diverse markets in the Midwest, Ontario and Gulf Coast ANR East Pipeline Project TransCanada U.S. Pipelines is developing the ANR East Pipeline Project to transport growing supplies of Appalachian Basin gas including the Utica shale to markets in the Midwest, Louisiana Gulf Coast, and Ontario.The project will provide affordable, clean-burning and abundant natural gas supplies to help meet the growing need for power generation, help support growth in the industrial and commercial business sectors, and provide ample supplies for LNG exports from the Louisiana and Texas Gulf Coast.The project will offer supply diversity to its growing demand base, and market diversity to Utica producers and potential shippers. In late 2013 and early 2014,ANR Pipeline developed a series of projects utilizing existing capacity aimed at providing export routes of Appalachian supplies to the Midwest and Gulf Coast.These solicitations were extremely successful leaving ANR unable to accommodate all the interest shown.This project represents the next logical step in providing more connectivity between the Utica basin and the markets that ANR serves.The development of this project has been the result of the ever increasing need being expressed to ANR for a new economic and strategic growth project out of the Appalachian basin. About TransCanada With more than 60 years’ experience,TransCanada is a leader in the responsible development and reliable operation of North American energy infrastructure including natural gas and oil pipelines, power generation and gas storage facilities. We operate one of the largest natural gas transmission networks in North America — 42,500-miles (68,500-kilometres (km)) — tapping into virtually every major gas supply basin and transporting approximately 20 per cent of the continent’s daily natural gas supply.We are North America’s third largest provider of natural gas storage and related services with more than 400 billion cubic feet (Bcf) of storage capacity. TransCanada’s natural gas pipeline assets include the 10,017-mile (16,121-km) ANR system which transports natural gas from primarily Texas and Oklahoma on its southwest leg and in the Gulf of Mexico and Louisiana on its southeast leg.The system extends to markets located mainly in Wisconsin, Michigan, Illinois, Ohio and Indiana.ANR also connects with other natural gas pipelines, providing access to diverse sources of North American supply.ANR also owns and operates regulated underground natural gas storage facilities in Michigan with a total capacity of 250 billion cubic feet (Bcf). The 2,639-mile (4,247-km) Keystone Pipeline system transports almost one-quarter of Canada’s crude oil exports to the United States. It has safely delivered more than 590 million barrels of Canadian crude oil to markets in the U.S. since it began operation in July 2010. Keystone now includes the Gulf Coast extension, which began transporting crude oil from Cushing, Oklahoma to refineries on the Gulf Coast of Texas in January 2014, providing these refineries with a more stable and less expensive source of oil from U.S. and Canadian producers.
  2. 2. Project Scope The ANR East Pipeline Project will include the construction of a new pipeline originating at the Cadiz Gas Plant in southeastern Ohio and terminating at the ANR Joliet Hub in Lake County, Indiana.The new build will consist of approximately 320 miles of large diameter, 1440 psig MAOP pipeline and up to 140,000 HP of compression. It is anticipated to have a capacity between 1.2 and 2.0 Bcf/d, depending upon contractual commitments, project scope and final design. In addition to receipt points at Cadiz, the ANR East Pipeline Project will also provide receipt points at Tuscarawas with Dominion Transmission (TL-400) and Tennessee Gas Pipeline. The project will be designed to deliver gas into ANR’s ML 3 tariff zone at Defiance and into ANR’s Zone ML7 at the Joliet Hub in Lake County, Indiana.

Optional Receipt Locations Pending customer interest, the project can be extended from the Cadiz Gas Plant to the Clarington Hub where the following additional pipelines could be accessed: • Dominion Transmission (TL-377) • EQT Ohio Valley Connector • Eureka Hunter Midstream • PVR Utica Ohio River Project • Texas Eastern M2 Zone/OPEN Project This extension would require an additional 34 miles of pipeline and compression with a design capacity between 0.6 and 1.2 Bcf/d.

  3. 3. Access to Markets… Midwest offers power and industrial demand growth, strong winter heating loads, and significant storage injection demand. Ontario is a key market outlet of Great Lakes with stable gas power generation and summer storage refill demand; projected significant power sector growth post-2020. Louisiana offers significant industrial demand, LNG exports will almost double the statewide demand by the end of the decade. 0 2000 4000 6000 8000 10000 12000 14000 Industrial Power R&C* Storage 2014 2017 2020 2023 0 500 1000 1500 2000 2500 3000 3500 4000 Industrial Power R&C* Storage 2014 2017 2020 2023 0 1000 2000 3000 4000 5000 6000 7000 8000 9000 10000 LNG Exports Industrial Power R&C* Storage 2014 2017 2020 2023 Chicago Crown Point St. John Joliet Sandwich NICOR NGPL NGR Horizon Midwestern Alliance Guardian Northern Border Peoples Constellation PPL University Park Crete Power Plant Vector NIPSCO Bridgman Delivery Locations The Project will interconnect with ANR in two different Tariff Zones. At Defiance, the Project will interconnect to ANR’s ML3 Tariff Zone. From Defiance, ANR has cost competitive expansions to facilitate deliveries to ANR’s at Defiance south to its Southeast Head Station at Eunice, Louisiana, and north to MichCon at Willow Run, Michigan. ANR can also provide transportation services to and from its vast array of storage facilities in northern Michigan via seamless arrangements with its affiliate Great Lakes Gas Transmission. Interconnections can be made available on 3rd party pipelines that cross the Project route, such as NiSource, Vector, Trunkline, and Panhandle, and with LDC territories including Consumers, NIPSCO and NICOR. ANR can also provide up to 850 MMcf/day of transportation service to Dawn, Ontario via seamless arrangements with its pipeline affiliates Great Lakes Gas Transmission and TransCanada Pipeline. These alternatives will be directed by customer interest. Why ANR? ANR and Great Lakes are well connected to existing markets and provides easy access to multiple liquid pricing hubs.ANR’s footprint accesses significant demand growth potential as well as on-system storage market opportunities. In addition to markets in the Midwest and Ontario, existing Southeast Mainline capacity provides access to significant growth opportunities in the Gulf Coast, and Southwest Mainline capacity for deliveries west and south. ANR and Great Lakes offers more than 27 Bcf/d of meter capacity in the Midwest and into Canada as well as 6.5 Bcf/d in Louisiana.Additional meter capacity is being developed for deliveries of supply for LNG exports in south Louisiana.
