The Millennium Pipeline Company has been delivering natural gas to consumers for nearly two decades. In June 2007, Millennium received authorization from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to commence construction. A year and a half later, that construction was completed, and on December 22, 2008, Millennium Pipeline went in service. Anchor shippers were National Grid, ConEd, Central Hudson Gas and Electric and Columbia Gas Transmission. The Pipeline, designed to deliver over 2.0 Bcf per day, is jointly owned by DT Midstream (52.5%), and TC Energy Corporation (47.5%) and is operated by TC Energy Corporation.
Since entering service in 2008, Millennium Pipeline has delivered natural gas, provided jobs, and supported local economies throughout the state of New York. By utilizing its footprint along the highly populated and regulated NY state and Northeast corridor, Millennium is able to link domestically produced natural gas, and transport it across its 263-mile interstate pipeline, to serve markets across New York State and New England.
Natural gas is an abundant fuel that can help deliver cleaner air and dramatically improve the quality of our environment as traditional natural gas markets grow in the Northeast. It helps to power economic expansion, jobs, and a transition away from the higher-impact fuels of the 20th century like coal and oil. Western New York storage development supports seasonal use of natural gas, and discoveries of local gas production including Marcellus Shale gas, improve optionality and reliability of natural gas.
Natural gas is a domestically-produced fuel that keeps more of our energy dollars here at home, rather than sending them to unstable parts of the world. At Millennium, we work every day to ensure that our core values stay in focus. In simple terms, our goal as residents of the Northeast, is to contribute to an enhanced quality of life for our friends, family and neighbors through the safe, efficient and environmentally-sound delivery of this 21st-century fuel.
As a member of the Interstate Gas Association of America (INGAA), Millennium is working together with other industry peers for a clean future, by being committed to INGAA's 2021 Vision Forward: Our Clean Energy Commitments.
Millennium’s joint owners, DT Midstream and TC Energy, are both active members of the ONE Future Coalition, an organization of more than 50 natural gas companies working together to voluntarily reduce methane emissions across the natural gas value chain to 1% or less, by 2025.
