TransCanada puts US natural gas pipeline into service
04 March, 2019
North American energy firm TransCanada has put its US$3.2bn (£2.4bn) Mountaineer Xpress (MXP) pipeline in West Virginia, US, into full service.
The 273.5km natural gas pipeline has a capacity of transporting 2.7bn cubic feet of natural gas per day.
TransCanada put the pipeline live after receiving approval from the US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.
Its US$600m (£453m) Gulf Xpress (GXP) project, which is a network of seven new compressor stations built in Kentucky, Tennessee and Mississippi, has also been placed into partial service.
The MXP and GXP projects are two of several pipelines designed to connect growing output in the Marcellus and Utica shale basins in Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Ohio with the rest of the US and Canada.
