Dominion Resources Inc., Richmond, Va., has scheduled an open season Oct. 5 to Dec. 5 to seek customers for its proposed Greenbrier pipeline project.

The $400 million, 600 MMbtu-capacity line would extend from Dominion's Cornwell Station near Charleston, W.Va., to the Transcontinental Gas Pipeline Co. line in Rockingham County, NC.

The line would access gas supplies from Canada, Appalachia, the Gulf Coast, and the Mid-Continent.

Completion is expected in June 2005, when Dominion said regional demand will exceed existing transportation.

Thomas Capps, Dominion chairman, president, and CEO, said, "This fast-growing Mid-Atlantic region continues to enjoy significant economic expansion. All of the regional demand projections point to a need for substantial improvements in our energy delivery infrastructure. This project will help meet this need economically."
