DTE Energy Plans Expansion of its Bluestone Pipeline
DTE Energy's gas storage and pipeline segment secured long-term gathering commitments with Southwestern Energy and Cabot Oil & Gas to expand the Bluestone Pipeline. The incremental Bluestone Pipeline capacity is supported by long-term agreements with minimum term commitments ranging from 10 to15 years. Once in-service, the expansion facilities will increase the capacity of the Bluestone Pipeline from 600,000 Dth/day to 975,000 Dth/day, a greater than 60% increase in capacity since the gathering system first came online in late 2012. The 44.5 mile Bluestone Pipeline and gathering system can currently transport up to 600,000 Dth/day combined to both the Millennium Pipeline in Broome County, N.Y. and the Tennessee Gas Pipeline in Susquehanna County, Pa.
