The proposed Magnolia Extension would connect the existing Magnolia Intrastate pipeline to Tennessee Natural Gas Pipeline’s 500 Line, providing transport of natural gas under 20-year, firm transport agreements to Williams’ Transco pipeline through an existing interconnect. The proposed pipeline is intended to offer supply diversity to growing demand areas in the Southeast market, and specifically, address infrastructure constraints associated with the rapid development of natural gas from the Marcellus and Utica Shale formations in the Appalachian Basin. The anticipated in-service date for the Magnolia Extension is 2019.

Upon the close of the open season, American Midstream will evaluate service demand to determine if the proposed pipeline is economically viable and whether necessary facilities can be constructed by the proposed in-service date.

Open Season Timing and Procedures

The non-binding open season will commence February 22, 2016 and terminate at 6:00pm CT on April 11, 2016. Requests for capacity must be for a minimum initial contract term of 20 years from the date of first delivery. Prospective customers are required to submit a completed Service Request form by 6:00pm CT April 11, 2016 which can be found on the Magnolia Extension project site.

Prospective customers may also download a Service Request form here.
