Northern Border Pipeline Company announced today that it accepted the certificate of public convenience and necessity issued by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) on August 18, 2005 for its Chicago III Expansion Project. The certificate authorizes the Company to construct, modify and install compression facilities to increase capacity on its pipeline system from Harper, Iowa to North Hayden, Indiana.

Northern Border Pipeline will construct a new 16,000 horsepower electric drive compressor unit at its existing Compressor Station No. 16 site in Johnson County, Iowa and make modifications to existing Compressor Station No. 17 in Scott County, Iowa and existing Compressor Station No. 18 in Bureau County, Illinois.

The project will create an additional 130 million cubic feet per day of transportation capacity, which is fully subscribed by four shippers under long-term firm agreements with terms ranging from five and one half years to 10 years. Construction is estimated to cost approximately $21 million and the pipeline is expected to be in service in the spring of 2006.

"We are very pleased to begin our third expansion of the Northern Border Pipeline into the Chicago market hub. This project will create value for our customers and it will improve the overall utilization of our pipeline by building additional capacity into the attractive Chicago market," said Bill Cordes, chairman of the Northern Border Pipeline Management Committee. "We expect construction to commence in the very near future to meet our target in service date of next spring."
