Specifically, Texas Eastern proposes to construct and operate a new receipt point to receive natural gas from Golden Pass Pipeline, LLC (Golden Pass), consisting of a 16-inch hot tap valve and associated piping on Texas Eastern's Line No. 14, electronic gas measurement equipment, and overpressure protection instrumentation. Texas Eastern also proposes to utilize an existing 14-inch hot tap on Line No. 14. Texas Eastern estimates the cost of construction to be $153,078.50. Texas Eastern states that Golden Pass will reimburse Texas Eastern for all costs associated with constructing the facilities. Texas Eastern asserts that the new receipt point will provide Texas Eastern with the ability to receive up to 600 million cubic feet per day of natural gas from Golden Pass into Texas Eastern's pipeline system. Texas Eastern avers that the addition of this receipt point will have no significant impact on Texas Eastern's peak day or annual deliveries.
