The Eastern Panhandle Expansion Project is being developed to support economic growth in the Eastern Panhandle region of West Virginia. Once complete, this new pipeline will deliver new supplies of natural gas to Mountaineer Gas in Morgan County.
At approximately 3.5 miles 5.6 (km) in length, this eight-inch diameter pipeline will provide 47,500 Dth per day of clean burning natural gas to meet the current and future demands of homes and businesses in the region.
TransCanada uses HDD (horizontal directional drilling) and other important construction practices to minimize our environmental impact during pipeline construction. Learn more about how the Eastern Panhandle Expansion Project will utilize this process in the following video.
