Northern Border Pipeline Company announced today that its Chicago III expansion project has been completed and is available for natural gas deliveries into the Chicago area. The project provides an additional 130 million cubic feet per day of transportation capacity into the Chicago market area.

Construction of the Chicago III Project — consisting of a new 16,000 horsepower electric drive compressor unit at Compressor Station No. 16 in Johnson County, Iowa and modifications to existing Compressor Station No. 17 in Scott County, Iowa and existing Compressor Station No. 18 in Bureau County, Illinois — began in September 2005. The $21 million project is fully subscribed by four shippers under long-term, firm agreements with terms ranging from five and one-half years to 10 years.

"The Chicago III project was put into service on April 30, 2006," said Bill Cordes, President of Northern Plains Natural Gas Company, operator of Northern Border Pipeline Company. "This is our third expansion of the Northern Border Pipeline into the Chicago market hub, and we continue to evaluate additional opportunities to create value for our customers into this major market."
