TransCanada Corporation has announced it has placed the Western Build of its WB XPress (WBX) project into service.

“WB XPress provides an attractive outlet for our producer customers, creating significant new takeaway capacity in Appalachia,” said Stan Chapman, Executive Vice President & President, US Natural Gas Pipelines. “We are pleased to deliver on the first phase of this project and look forward to placing the Eastern Build in-service later this year.”

The Western Build of WBX is designed to move approximately 760 million ft3/d of natural gas to a delivery point on Tennessee Gas Pipeline’s Broad Run System for transportation to the Gulf Coast. Highlights of the project include construction of the Elk River Compressor Station in Clendenin, West Virginia, along with associated pipeline and facilities.

WBX is an approximate US$900 million investment, upgrading and enhancing an existing TransCanada pipeline system that has been safely serving customers for over 60 years. The project includes two new compressor stations, 30 miles (48 km) of greenfield pipeline and modifications to seven existing pipelines, allowing an additional 1.3 billion ft3 of natural gas to flow through the system per day. The project is part of TransCanada’s US$28 billion near-term growth portfolio that includes US$8 billion in natural gas pipelines in the US.
