Project Overview

The Line 1570 project is part of Columbia Pipeline Group’s comprehensive Modernization Program. This proposed project consists of two major upgrades to our system. The first consists of a replacement of approximately 19 miles of existing pipeline between Waynesburg and Washington, Pennsylvania. The second feature involves modernizing our compressor station at Waynesburg to operate more efficiently. By investing in these facilities, Columbia will create a more safe and reliable delivery system for our customers throughout this region. Columbia Gas Transmission has estimated a capital expenditure of approximately $87 million to complete the Line 1570 project. This investment is expected to have a positive impact on local tax revenues and create additional opportunities throughout southwestern Pennsylvania.

We are replacing approximately 19 miles of existing 20-inch pipeline with a 24-inch pipeline and adding compression at an approximate cost of $18 million. The project, which will be in service by the fourth quarter of 2014, creates nearly 99,000 Dth/d of capacity and is supported by long-term, firm contracts.

Commitment to Safety

We believe pipeline safety begins long before natural gas begins flowing. From basic design to selection of materials, construction plans, operational plans and monitoring requirements, safety is our top priority. The Pipelines and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) has been notified of the project and will be conducting safety inspections and oversight. The new line will be constructed, tested and maintained in compliance with federal pipeline safety requirements leading industry standards.
