Columbia Gas Transmission receives FERC approval of customer settlement facilitating pipeline's long-term infrastructure investment plan

Monday, Jan 28, 2013

WASHINGTON and HOUSTON, Jan. 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- NiSource's Columbia Gas Transmission (Columbia) today received approval from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) for a customer settlement that facilitates Columbia's comprehensive pipeline infrastructure investment plan.

The settlement, filed on September 4, 2012 and widely supported by Columbia's customers, covers the initial five years of Columbia's investment plan and contains provisions for potential extension thereafter. Among other components, key elements of the settlement identify individual infrastructure projects and establish a mechanism for recovery of Columbia's revenue requirement for infrastructure investment under the plan.

"FERC's approval of our customer settlement is a milestone in our efforts to modernize Columbia's interstate pipeline system in a balanced, thoughtful and transparent manner," said Jimmy Staton, Columbia's chief executive officer. "We acknowledge FERC for their timely review and approval, and appreciate the collaboration from our customers. We look forward to getting the job done. The work we do will help ensure safer, more reliable pipeline infrastructure for our customers and the communities across our footprint."
