With Spectra (Enbridge) and Kinder Morgan delaying their expansion plans somewhat, PNGTS is picking up the slack, and is hoping to increase the deliveries of gas to the Dracut area and points north. Major expansion of PNGTS depends on additional gas supply on the Iroquois. Some of that, around 80 million cubic feet/day, is supposed to be here this winter, thanks to an expansion of an existing pipeline crossing western NH called the New Market II project. However PNGTS is taking a conservative approach and is assuming that they can only obtain a small portion of that capacity, and not until 2018. It is likely that the additional capacity on New Market II will go to Canada, where it may end up at a liquefaction facility in Montreal (Gaz Metro). The liquefaction of this pipeline gas is designed to allow LNG trucks to take the gas through Vermont into markets like Keene NH, where there is a possible demand for gas but no connection to the interstate pipeline network.

The 2018 route that PNGTS plans on is to pipe the gas across Quebec to an entry point to the USA at Pittsburgh, NH and then travelling on its existing pipeline to Porland ME via Berlin, NH where it links up with the massive Maritimes Northeast pipeline. Expansions on existing compressor stations will be needed to implement their full plan. They are now selling space on their pipelines in the following quantities:

2018, November: 20-40 million cubic feet per day
2019, November: 118 million cubic feet per day
2020, November: 90-120 million cubic feet per day

The name for the new PNGTS project is Portland Express. This replaces the previously announced Continent to Coast project which never really got much traction due to low customer demand and the delays in the Constitution pipeline, which would have provided that missing supply on Iroquois.
