Duke Announces New Virginia-North Carolina Pipeline

LCG, Oct. 25, 2000--Duke Energy Gas Transmission yesterday announced plans to expand its East Tennessee Natural Gas system by building a 95-mile extension from Virginia into North Carolina.

Called the Patriot Extension, the new pipeline will bring natural gas service to portions of southwestVirginia for the first time and introduce a competitive supply of natural gas to North Carolina fromAppalachian and Gulf Coast producers, Duke said.

Duke Energy Gas Transmission is the Houston-based division of Duke Energy Corp. responsible for the company's interstate natural gas pipeline operations. The company said the extension, the centerpiece of a $215 million project, will run from the East Tennessee system in Wythe County, Va., cross Carroll, Patrick and Henry counties in Virginia and terminate in Rockingham County, N.C.

"Our discussions with potential Virginia and North Carolina customers showed a strong need foradditional natural gas supplies, supply diversity, transportation and competition in the region," said Robert B. Evans, president of the Duke unit.

Duke said the 24-inch diameter pipeline will be coupled with East Tennessee system mainline enhancements to initially transport 200 million cubic feet of natural gas per day beginning in fall 2002. The pipeline extension is expandable, in increments, to 600 million cubic feet per day.

Following formal shipper meeting to be held over the next two months and a binding open season for capacity on the extension, Duke will file an application for the Patriot Extension with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.
