LCG, November 12, 2013--Spectra Energy Corp. and Spectra Energy Partners yesterday announced that they have executed new long-term contracts for 650,000 Dth/day of natural gas transportation on the Texas Eastern pipeline system to support the growing manufacturing sector and liquefied natural gas (LNG) export industry along the Texas and Louisiana coast.

Spectra Energy's president of U.S. Transmission and Storage stated, "Spectra Energy's Texas Eastern system is strategically located to provide natural gas from the burgeoning Marcellus, Utica and Eagle Ford production areas to meet demand growth in the industrial and LNG export sectors. We're proud to be the provider of choice for gas producers seeking new industrial markets and for the developing LNG export market in the Gulf Coast region."

Customers that executed long-term service contracts include: EQT Corporation, 100,000 Dth/day, in-service 2016; GDF Suez S.A., 200,000 Dth/day, in-service 2017; Mitsubishi Corporation, 100,000 Dth/day, in-service 2017; MMGS, Inc.

The $150 million Gulf Markets Expansion Project is a continuation of Spectra Energy's development efforts, including the Texas Eastern Appalachia to Market (TEAM) 2014 and Ohio Pipeline Energy Network (OPEN) projects, to transform its Texas Eastern Transmission mainline into a bi-directional system providing diverse supply access to Northeast, Southeast and Gulf Coast markets.
