National Fuel Plans to Extend Empire State Pipeline


National Fuel Gas Co. plans to expand its natural gas pipeline operations to serve new markets in New York and the Northeast by extending the Empire State Pipeline. This extension project will provide an upstream supply link for the Millennium Phase I Pipeline and will transport natural gas supplies to downstream customers, including KeySpan Energy Corp.

National Fuel owns and operates Empire, an existing 24-inch diameter natural gas transmission pipeline that originates at the United States/Canada border at the Chippawa Channel of the Niagara River, and extends easterly 157 miles from Buffalo, N.Y., to near Syracuse, N.Y. Developing the extension project involves constructing a pipeline southward from this existing line near Rochester, N.Y., to connect with the Millennium Pipeline near Corning, N.Y. Empire will construct approximately 83 miles of 24-inch diameter pipeline and two compressor stations along this route to collectively produce 23,000 horsepower.
