Proposed Portland XPress Project: More energy for New England
Portland Natural Gas Transmission System (PNGTS) is proposing Portland XPress to increase New England’s supply of energy without construction of new underground facilities. Added to existing capacity, Portland XPress will be capable of transporting 0.2 billion cubic feet a day (Bcf/d) to areas where it is in great demand.
This increase in much-needed natural gas access for New England will be achieved via modifications to the existing compressor station in Westbrook Maine and horsepower addition to the existing compressor station in Eliot, Maine. Both sites are jointly owned by PNGTS and Maritimes and Northeast Pipeline (MNE).
The Proposed Portland XPress Project is governed according to regulations outlined by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC). It is also subject to rules and regulations of the Department of Energy administered by the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration and the Environmental Protection Agency.
