PEARL RIVER, N.Y., April 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The Millennium Pipeline Company ("Millennium") announced that its Hancock Compressor Station went into service on March 31, 2014 and is now available to help move natural gas across the Northeast Region.
On March 26, 2014, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), the agency charged with overseeing the interstate natural gas pipeline system, granted Millennium's request for Authorization to Commence Service at the Hancock Compressor Station.
"We are thrilled to announce the Hancock Compressor Station is now in service and will help move natural gas more efficiently throughout the northeast," said Millennium President Joseph Shields. "We would like to thank everyone involved in helping make this project a reality. It allows us to deliver clean, natural gas to our customers."
During the five-month construction period, the Hancock Compressor project employed more than 75 local construction workers, many from local labor unions. Local restaurants and hotels saw a big increase in business over the cold winter because of all the local construction activity. As a result of this capital investment, Delaware County and the Town of Hancock will enjoy new streams of revenue.
Located in the rural town of Hancock, Delaware County, New York, the compressor station is driven by one 15,700 horsepower natural gas turbine. Key shippers on this project are Southwestern Energy Services Company and WPX Energy.
"Now that spring is here, we can get to work restoring and landscaping the site," said Shields. "Our goal is for the facility to be barely noticeable to our neighbors. We are committed to being a responsible and committed corporate neighbor in the years to come."
Millennium Pipeline is a New York-based interstate natural gas pipeline serving the Northeast. Millennium's pipeline runs from Corning, New York to Rockland County, New York. Millennium is jointly owned by affiliates of NiSource Inc., National Grid and DTE Energy.
