By OGJ editors

HOUSTON, July 19 -- The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission has approved ANR Pipeline Co.'s proposed $18.7-million East Leg expansion in Wisconsin. The expansion will add about 143.4 MMcfd of firm natural gas capacity to ANR's lateral system.

The El Paso Corp. subsidiary will replace 4.7 miles of an existing 14-in. pipeline with 30-in. pipe in Washington County, add 3.5 miles of 8-in. loop on the Denmark lateral in Brown County, and modify its existing Mountain compressor station in Oconto County.

The expansion will allow ANR to provide additional gas transportation services, particularly to new power plants in the area.
