NiSource Gas Transmission & Storage Company (NGT&S) unit Columbia Gas Transmission has announced that its Appalachian Expansion project, which was scheduled for completion in the fourth quarter of 2009, is now in service. The project provides approximately 100,000 dekatherms per day of new transportation capacity to three key Appalachian producers.

Located in Lincoln County, W.Va., the Appalachian Expansion consists of two 4,500 horsepower compression units at the Hamlin Compressor Station and 350 feet of new pipeline.

“The Appalachian Expansion is an example of NGT&S utilizing existing infrastructure to create additional firm transportation capacity,” said Jimmy Thomas, senior vice president of Commercial Operations and Chief Commercial Officer for NGT&S. “The timing of this completion will also provide such benefits earlier than anticipated. This project is just one of several projects we have undertaken in the Basin to fully utilize our strategically positioned assets to accommodate Marcellus shale production along with traditional and CBM gas. We will continue to grow and adapt our system to provide critical transportation services to both producers and markets.”

Other growth projects for NGT&S recently completed include Millennium Pipeline, the Eastern Market Expansion and Ohio Storage Expansion
