National Fuel Gas to expand gas pipeline system in Pennsylvania

BUFFALO, N.Y. - National Fuel Gas Co. executives said on Feb. 6 they are moving ahead with three pipeline projects designed to capitalize on the Marcellus Shale region of western Pennsylvania.
The projects, valued at $74 million in all, would extend National Fuel's Empire Connector pipeline by 16 miles to the south, running from its current end point in Corning to Jackson Township in northwestern Pennsylvania.
NFG would also build a separate pipeline linking the southwestern end of its pipeline system with the Texas Eastern pipeline.
NFG is building a new compressor station in Lamont, Pa., to increase the capacity of an existing line that links with the Tennessee Gas pipeline.
The Amherst energy company also is working on the second phase of its project to build a gathering pipeline system to connect new wells in the Marcellus region with existing pipelines.
