Spire STL Pipeline Announces Open Season

Companies can bid for capacity on pipeline through August 19

ST. LOUIS, Aug. 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- At Spire, we help communities and businesses in the region grow and thrive. The proposed Spire STL Pipeline will take that one step further by bringing affordable and abundant natural gas to the St. Louis region from the largest producing basin in America. Today marks the beginning of the open season for this pipeline to broadly solicit commercial interest in capacity on our proposed pipeline. The open season ends on August 19, 2016. 

The proposed 70-mile steel pipeline would interconnect to the Rockies Express Pipeline in Scott County, Illinois and end in St. Louis County, Missouri. The pipeline as proposed will be capable of delivering up to 400,000 dekatherms per day of natural gas into our region.

"We are fortunate, and excited, to have the opportunity to bring an affordable, reliable and large scale natural gas resource to St. Louis and the surrounding communities. This important new pipeline will help meet the region's growing energy needs well into the future," said Scott Jaskowiak, vice president of strategy and corporate development at Spire. "The open season is a time when we can work alongside local business partners and other interested parties to solidify the design of the pipeline and ensure it meets the growing needs of the region's homes, communities and businesses. Any time we expand natural gas pipeline infrastructure, long-term economic growth benefits follow, which means that businesses and families thrive."

Open season bids are due August 19, 2016 for service beginning as early as November 1, 2018. To learn more about Spire STL Pipeline, visit www.SpireSTLPipeline.com.
