Appalachian Gateway Project Enters Service
Thursday, September 06, 2012
Dominion Transmission has placed its Appalachian Gateway Project into service, moving about 485 MMcfd (13.7 X 106 m3/d) of gas produced in West Virginia and southwest Pennsylvania to storage fields and pipelines in Pennsylvania.
For the US$750 million Appalachian Gateway Project, Dominion built four gas compressor stations and upgraded two existing compressor stations, adding about 17,800 hp (13,273 kW) to the Dominion system.
About 110 mi. (177 km) of new pipeline were built, beginning in West Virginia and terminating at Dominion's and Spectra's jointly owned Oakford facility in Delmont, Pennsylvania, east of Pittsburgh.
