The recently released FERC January 2014 Energy Infrastructure Update natural gas highlights include Texas Eastern’s request for authorization to construct and operate an Ohio pipeline project that will provide “550 MMcf/d of capacity and reverse flow capabilities from the Utica and Marcellus production areas in Ohio” to delivery points in the Gulf Coast. We discussed implications of the growing trend of reverse natural gas flow due to increasing supply in the Northeast in our “Going With the Flow” series (here and here). The report’s “Total Installed Operating Generating Capacity” highlights indicate that natural gas (41.97%) far outpaces coal (28.56%) as a source for electricity generation.
