SUNSHINE PIPELINE PROJECT FILES FERC APPLICATION

 HOUSTON, May 28 /PRNewswire/ -- The partners in SunShine Interstate Transmission Company (SITCO) filed an application today with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to construct, own and operate a 170-mile natural gas pipeline system to serve the southern coast of Mississippi and Alabama and the rapidly growing Florida market.
 The project will commence at an interconnection with the Chandeleur Pipeline Company near Pascagoula, Miss., and transport natural gas to delivery points in Escambia and Okaloosa counties, Florida, where SITCO will interconnect with the SunShine Pipeline Company, a proposed 515- mile intrastate pipeline to be constructed in Florida.
 SITCO facilities are designed to provide an initial capacity of 330 million cubic feet a day (MMcf/d) of natural gas in 1995, growing to 640 MMcf/d in 1999 with the addition of compression. The SITCO project anticipates holding open season in June to allow additional shippers the opportunity to contract for transportation on the interstate pipeline.
 "Three other pipelines will interconnect with SITCO to provide customers direct access to gas reserves in South Texas, East Texas, onshore and offshore Louisiana, Mississippi and Mobile Bay," said SunShine President E.J. Burgin.
 "The project will provide expanding Florida energy markets clean- burning natural gas as a reliable and cost effective alternative to other energy sources," he added, "and will help assure competition and fair rates for electric power generation, industrial, commercial and residential customers."
 SITCO will be project-financed and is estimated to cost $200 million for about 143 miles of 30-inch mainline, 27 miles of pipeline lateral facilities, one 8,000-horsepower compressor station and eight meter stations. About half of the proposed route is along existing utility corridors or right-of-way.
 The partners in both proposed SunShine pipeline projects are subsidiaries of The Coastal Corporation, Florida Power Corporation and TransCanada Pipelines Limited.
