Phase VI

The Gulfstream Phase VI Project is an infrastructure expansion designed to provide Tampa Electric Company (TECO) an additional 78,000 dekatherms of natural gas per day to serve the Big Bend Power Station in Hillsborough, Fla.  The estimated in-service date for completion of this project is late 2022.

 

Project Scope

The proposed major facilities include:

  • The installation of a 3.9-mile, 36-inch diameter pipeline in Coden, Ala.
  • The installation of a booster compressor at Gulfstream Compressor Station 410 located in Coden, Ala.
  • Uprating the maximum allowable operating pressure for a portion of the pipeline in Coden, Ala.
  • Installation of a meter station in Hillsborough County, Fla.

 

Regulatory Process

Before the project can be constructed, Gulfstream Natural Gas System must first obtain a federal Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), in addition to various other state and federal permits.  Gulfstream expects to file a formal application with FERC for the Gulfstream Phase VI Project during the spring of 2019.

FERC will prepare an environmental evaluation using information included in Gulfstream’s Certificate Application, supplemental information that may be provided upon request, information assembled by FERC staff, as well as information provided by state and federal agencies and the public.  The evaluation will describe the proposed project and alternatives, as well as identifying existing environmental conditions and potential impacts from the project.  The evaluation will also indicate what mitigation measures, constructions procedures, and routing could be included in the project to eliminate or reduce impacts.
