Project Details

  • Operator: Iroquois Pipeline Co[2]
  • Owner: TC Energy, Dominion Resources, TC Pipelines LP
  • Current capacity: 500 Million cubic feet per day
  • Length: 416 miles / 669 km
  • Status: Operating
  • Start Year: 1992

Background

Iroquois was created in response to dramatic increases in natural gas demand and was designed to link the Canadian supplies with the Northeast U.S. markets. [3]

The Iroquois Gas Transmission System is a limited partnership of four U.S. and Canadian energy companies or limited partnerships. TC PipeLines, LP, owns a 49.3 percent interest. Of the remainder, 0.7 percent is held by a subsidiary of TransCanada and 50 percent is owned by affiliates of Dominion Resources, Inc. The system includes a 416-mile interstate natural gas pipeline that extends from the U.S.-Canadian border at Waddington, New York, onward through New York State and western Connecticut, finally reaching its end point in the Bronx, New York. The system began operations in 1992. There are 7 compressor stations and 20 delivery points along the pipeline.[1]

Expansion Project

Waddington Expansion Project

A proposed expansion would increase deliverability to the Iroquois system from Waddington, NY. It would effect Quebec, Canada, and New York and Connecticut, USA.[2]

Waddington Expansion Project Details

  • Operator: Iroquois Pipeline Co[2]
  • Owner: TC Energy, Dominion Resources, TC Pipelines LP[1]
  • Current capacity: 125 million cubic feet per day (MMcf/d)[2]
  • Diameter:
  • Length: 0.0 new miles of pipeline[2]
  • Cost: US$272 million[2]
  • Status: Proposed[2]
  • Start Year: 2023[2]

Wright Interconnect Expansion Project

The proposed expansion would have been built in conjunction with the Constitution Pipeline in New York, USA. It would have only included a capacity expansion, with no additional miles of pipeline laid. However, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) there have been no development updates since April 2018 and the expansion project is on hold.[2]
