HOUSTON, July 25 -- Algonquin Gas Transmission LLC soon will begin construction associated with the Ramapo expansion project, which will enable transportation of new volumes of natural gas to two major distribution companies serving the northeastern US.

The $200 million expansion involves replacing a 4.8-mile section of 26-in. pipeline with 42-in. pipe in Ramapo, NY; building a compressor station in Oxford, Conn.; adding turbine compressor units at three existing stations in New York and New Jersey; modifying piping and other facilities at an existing meter station in Ramapo; and rebuilding a meter station in Brookfield, Conn.

The expanded pipeline, to be placed into service in November 2008, will deliver 319 MMcfd of gas to KeySpan Energy and Con Edison of New York via the Millennium Pipeline, currently under construction.

Interest in the pipeline is held 100% by Algonquin's parent company Spectra Energy.
