The Rockies Express Pipeline (REX) Zone 3 received FERC authorisation on 1 September to enter full east-to-west operation, after completing all interconnect work.
REX Zone 3 East-to-West is a multiphase project, and is one of 2015's most significant natural gas infrastructure projects supporting Appalachian Basin distribution. It has so far incrementally increased westward capacity on the line to 1.8 billion ft3/d.
The next planned phase of the project would increase the capacity to 2.6 billion ft3/d, and is planned to be in-service by fourth-quarter 2016. This project is among several that are addressing takeaway from the Marcellus and Utica plays.
