KMIGT states that as a result of wrinkle bends, which have caused the pipeline to become physically deteriorated, approximately 11.4 miles of its 16-inch Franklin to Hastings Pipeline needs to be replaced. KMIGT asserts that, in response to the developing market for natural gas and to develop firm transportation to serve ethanol production facilities in the Midwest, KMIGT held an open season from July 2, 2010 through July 9, 2010 seeking support to expand its firm transportation capacity. As a result of the open season, KMIGT states that it has entered into a binding precedent agreement with Aventine Renewable Energy—Aurora West, LLC to provide up to 10,000 dekatherms per day of natural gas to serve its new ethanol plant located near Aurora, Nebraska. Accordingly, KMIGT proposes to replace 11.4 miles of the Franklin to Hastings Pipeline with 20-inch pipe to serve the increase in firm load. In addition, KMIGT proposes to construct and operate certain ancillary facilities. KMIGT estimates cost of constructing the proposed facilities is $23,511,100.
