The project, capable of transporting 200,000 dekatherms per day, will move supplies from various receipt points in central and southwestern Pennsylvania to a nexus of market pipelines and storage facilities in Leidy, Clinton County, Pennsylvania.

Earlier this year Dominion sold its natural gas exploration and production business to Consol so that the company can concentrate on its regulated businesses, including increased transportation and storage infrastructure opportunities resulting from Marcellus shale discoveries.

Dominion plans to file for a FERC certificate in December. If the project is approved, construction is planned to begin in March 2012, and it is expected to enter service in November 2012. Construction plans include new compression facilities at three existing compressor stations in central Pennsylvania.
