FERC signs off on Mountaineer Xpress, Gulf Xpress projects

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) has granted certificate approval to the Mountaineer XPress natural gas pipeline project in West Virginia, Platts reports. The news service says the project, sponsored by TransCanada's Columbia Gas Transmission, is expected to support natural gas production in the Marcellus shale play and increase deliveries from the Appalachian basin to neighboring regions. Platts also says FERC granted certificate approval to Columbia's Gulf XPress project, which will add compressor stations in Kentucky, Tennessee and Mississippi to allow for bidirectional flows of gas between Appalachia and the Gulf.
