The Albert Lea North E-line Expansion Project will allow Northern to accommodate customer requests for firm natural gas transportation capacity along Northern's existing pipeline system. To meet these requests, Northern is proposing to construct and operate an approximately 1.5-mile-extension of its 36-inch-diameter Ventura Interconnect to Farmington E-line in Freeborn and Steele counties in Minnesota.
On July 15, 2022, Northern filed a prior notice request with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission requesting approval to construct and operate the pipeline and associated appurtenant facilities. FERC assigned Docket No. CP22-489-000 to the project request. The project was self-authorized September 26, 2022.
Northern plans to commence construction activities during May 2023, for a September 23, 2023, in-service date.
