Northeast Gateway Deepwater Port
|This article is part of the FrackSwarm coverage of fracking.|
The Northeast Gateway Deepwater Port is an idle LNG deepwater import facility located 13 miles from shore in the Massachusetts Bay.
Northeast Gateway Deepwater Port consists of a "dual submerged turret-loading buoy system and an approximately 16-mile pipeline connecting to the existing subsea HubLine pipeline operated by Algonquin Gas Transmission." The pipeline is capable of delivering natural gas at a rate of up to 600 MMcf/d.
The terminal is connected to the Northeastern natural gas grid through a pipeline lateral built by Algonquin Gas Transmission. Northeast Gateway Deepwater Port is owned and operated by Excelerate Energy. The Northeast Gateway Deepwater Port was first operational in 2008. The Boston Globe reported in 2013 that the Northeast Gateway Deepwater Port received a few shipments during its first years of operations, but has sat idle since 2010. Thus, its current operation status is unclear.
