Transco to Charleston

Dominion Carolina Gas Transmission is proposing to construct and/or modify and operate the Transco to Charleston Project. The proposed Transco to Charleston Project will include approximately 60 miles of pipeline including two new natural gas transmission pipelines, upgrades to an existing compressor station, and the addition of a new compressor station.
