Maritimes Pipeline to Provide Gas to New Hampshire Plant

LCG, May 18, 2001The Maritimes & Northeast Pipeline LLC said yesterday it reached an agreement with an ad hoc subsidiary of Consolidated Edison Inc. to provide natural gas transportation service to a 525 megawatt power plant currently under construction in Newington, N.H.

The plant, being developed by Con Edison affiliate Newington Energy LLC, is scheduled to begin commercial operation next year. Maritimes & Northeast intends to build a connection to the plant from an existing lateral near the plant.

"With natural gas from the Maritimes pipeline, we will be able to produce cleaner, low-costelectricity for the people of New Hampshire and New England," said Michael Madia, a Newington vice president.

Maritimes & Northeast transports natural gas from the Sable offshore project near Nova Scotia. When the pipeline went into service last year, it bought gas to parts of the U.S. Northeast that had never had the fuel.

Maritimes & Northeast is jointly owned by affiliates of Duke Energy Corp. (37.5 percent), Canada's Westcoast Energy Inc. (37.5 percent), Exxon Mobil Corp. (12.5 percent); and Emera Inc. of Nova Scotia (12.5 percent).
