BP and Conoco-Phillips filed a natural gas pipeline plan with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission or FERC on Wednesday and plan to take bids from gas shippers, including themselves, beginning in July. They call their plan the Denali project. The other major shipper, Exxon-Mobil, is part of a competing pipeline project with Trans Canada. A separate Open Season plan for that project was approved by FERC a week ago, and begins at the end of this month.
