PRIVATELY OWNED TRANSMISSION LINE PLANNED IN BRITAIN
Opening British gas utility sales to participation by private industry has sparked the first signs of competition in gas transmission. Gas Transmission U.K. Ltd. (GTUK) disclosed plans for a large diameter pipeline between Bacton terminal in East Anglia and an industrial belt along the Thames estuary. The company says everything is on schedule to file an application for the pipeline at the end of this month. The line is to be in use by mid-1993.
