January 21, 2011 - quick update

Friday, January 21, 2011

A quick update from the road: I've been in Utah, getting a first-hand look at the Ruby Pipeline.  This project being developed by El Paso Corporation's subsidiary Ruby Pipeline, L.L.C. represents about $3 billion in investment in natural gas infrastructure.  The route travels about 680 miles from the Opal Hub in Wyoming to Malin, Oregon, and has an initial design capacity of up to 1.5 billion cubic feet per day.  As I've noted before, Utah already has low electricity prices, and a good supply of natural gas to businesses and households alike.  Next week, I'll share some photos of the project, and some observations about its impacts.
