Northstar is providing engineering, procurement, fabrication and construction services to Spectra Energy for three Rice Energy interconnects in the Marcellus Shale region. Each station is designed for a maximum flow rate of 600 MMScfd. Two of the stations are being designed to accommodate a future, second 600 MMScfd M&R station, which will allow for a full flow rate of 1.2 BCFD.
Northstar is wrapping up the engineering phases and the stations are currently in production at Northstar’s manufacturing shop. The first station is scheduled to ship at the end of September with commissioning planned for the end of this year.
