HOUSTON, Apr. 30 -- ANR Pipeline Co., a subsidiary of El Paso Corp., said Monday it is holding a non-binding open season in May to determine customer interest in contracting for incremental transportation capacity along ANR's gas pipeline system in south-central Wisconsin.

The WestLeg expansion project would provide additional transportation capacity by November 2003 at a level determined by market interest. The proposed expansion is intended primarily to serve incremental growth markets represented by customers including local utilities, electric power developers, and marketers.

Proposed facility additions may include the looping of ANR's existing Janesville and Beloit laterals, as well as adding compression at the company's Janesville, Wis., compressor station.

Market growth is being fueled by more than 1,400 Mw of gas-fired power development projects, in addition to growth in existing residential, commercial, and industrial markets served by ANR in southern Wisconsin.

ANR operates a 10,500-mile interstate gas pipeline providing transportation and storage to customers in the US and Canada.
