Spectra Transmission Expansion in Taylor


Spectra Energy now says it has service agreements with customers, which reinforces its plans for transmission expansion from its McMahon plant in Taylor.

The so-called T-North expansion project will increase eastbound transportation capacity by 153 million cubic feet per day.

It will be accomplished through increased compression at existing compressor station sites, which the company says will minimize project costs and also the impact on local area landowners and the environment.


The eastbound expansion is scheduled to be in service by “early” next year and the westbound expansion toward the “end” of 2010.

As usual the project is subject to receipt of regulatory approvals.
