Wright Interconnect Project (WIP)

Connecting Marcellus Supply to Iroquois Markets

The Wright Interconnect Project ("WIP") is being developed in conjunction with the proposed Constitution Pipeline to enable delivery of up to 650,000 Dth/d of natural gas from the terminus of the Constitution Pipeline in Schoharie County, NY into both Iroquois and the Tennessee Gas Pipeline under a 15 year capacity lease agreement with Constitution. The Project includes construction of a new transfer compression faciility with cooling to be located adjacent to its existing Wright Compressor Station in Wright, NY, as well as modifications to certain existing facilities at the same location.

The proposed Constitution Pipeline is being developed to bring rapidly growing natural gas supplies from northeastern Pennsylvania to serve the energy needs of New York and New England - markets presently served by Iroquois.

Leasing the WIP capacity from Iroquois will allow Constitution to eliminate their proposed compression facility, thereby reducing the impact on the environment and the Wright, New York community.

 

  • WIP is proposed to connect rapidly expanding Marcellus supplies to Iroquois markets in New York and New England
  • New physical receipt at the proposed Constitution Pipeline interconnect in Wright, New York
  • Utilizes Iroquois' existing Wright Compressor Station property
  • Approximately 22,000 HP of transfer compression with cooling and associated facilities
  • Capacity = up to 650,000 Dth/day
  • Proposed In-Service Date: TBD

Iroquois' Wright Interconnect Project, in conjunction with the proposed Constitution Pipeline, is in regulatory delay and both entities are awaiting various decisions from the FERC and the New York DEC. It is anticipated that these decisions will be forthcoming in the second half of 2018.
