As a result of the booming gas market in Pennsylvania’s Marcellus shale, Columbia Gas Transmission Group submitted plans Monday with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) for a $210 million expansion to its Philadelphia network, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Columbia’s plans include installing a 20-inch-diameter pipeline on a 7.5-mile route in Gloucester County and a 26-inch-diameter pipeline for 8.9 miles in Chester County. Columbia expects FERC approval of the East Side Expansion Project by June 2014.
