- Natural Gas Infrastructure & Transportation Service Negotiations
We designed and built a natural gas-fired 56-megawatt (MW) generating facility. Within the design-build contract, we agreed to assist Coffeyville in negotations for natural gas infrastructure and gas transportation services. Fuel supply options were limited for the project as only one interstate gas pipeline is within a 50-mile radius of the site, eliminating the opportunity to leverage one region fuel supply source against another to reduce gas infrastructure costs and long-term pipeline service costs. It was determined that the city's fuel supply delivery options consisted of constructing a 4-mile lateral from the interstate pipeline or negotiating an infrastructure and transportation service agreement with the local gas distribution company.
Our team negotiated a discounted long-term transportation service agreement with the gas distribution company, Atmos Energy. We reviewed gas line construction plans and monitored the progress of construction against the schedule.
The power station is used to balance wind and solar generation in Oklahoma and Kansas as well as provide peaking power. The plant is designed to go from startup to full load within 10 minutes.
