El Paso announces Seafarer Pipeline FERC filing.

El Paso Corp. has filed its formal application with the FERC for authority to construct and operate the U.S. portion of the proposed Seafarer natural gas pipeline project. The Seafarer project is designed to transport natural gas from the proposed High Rock liquefied natural gas regasification facility in the Bahamas to southern Florida. Subsidiaries of the company executed binding precedent agreements with an affiliate of FPL Group Resources for 800,000 dekatherms per day of capacity earlier in the year.

The Seafarer Pipeline System consists of an 87-mile international segment from the proposed High Rock LNG regasification terminal in the Bahamas to the U.S.-Bahamas Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) boundary in the Atlantic Ocean and a 41-mile U.S. segment from the EEZ to an onshore interconnect with the existing Florida Gas Transmission pipeline system in Palm Beach County.

El Paso has been working with FERC through the pre-filing process since March and has requested receipt of a certificate by July 31, 2005. Construction of the project is scheduled to begin in 2006, and the 26-inch pipeline is expected to be in service by 2008.
