COLUMBIA SEEKS TO HALT MORE GAS PURCHASES
Columbia Gas Transmission Corp. has asked permission of the federal bankruptcy court in Delaware to reject an additional 532 natural gas purchase contracts it deems noncompetitive. Columbia Transmission Vice Pres. Leslie Strand said the contracts involved were not included in the 4,141 above market price contracts the bankruptcy court allowed his company to reject last August (OGJ, Sept. 2, p. 40). They were not included because they did not require gas purchases during summer months.
