Tennessee Gas Pipeline Co, a subsidiary of Kinder Morgan has signed a deal with New York utility company Con Edison that will allow it to supply greater volumes of natural gas to upstate New York.
By upgrading its compression facilities outside of the New York, Tennessee Gas Pipeline would provide the increased natural gas capacity to Con Edison's distribution system in Westchester County, New York.
Tennessee Gas Pipeline already supplies natural gas to the rural county just north of New York City but the upgrades are expected to boost volumes in Con Edison's distribution system. The increased capacity could be placed in service by November 2023, which is subject to regulatory approvals.
Through this deal, it will boosts the natural gas supplies without having to build a new pipeline as New York State has blocked pipelines companies from building new natural gas pipelines or expanding existing ones within the state.
