Project Details

  • Operator: Eastern Gas Transmission and Storage[1]
  • Parent company: Berkshire Hathaway Energy[1]
  • Capacity: 9.5 billion cubic feet per day (bcf/d) / 9,500 million cubic feet per day (MMcf/d)[1]
  • Length: over 4,000 miles[1]
  • Status: Operating[1]


The system was originally owned by Dominion Energy subsidiary Consolidated Natural Gas (CNG), but on November 1, 2020, Berkshire Hathaway Energy acquired a number of Dominion Energy gas transmission, storage, and LNG assets. The company is now called BHE GT&S, and the former CNG operations are known as Eastern Gas Transmission and Storage System (EGTS).[1]

EGTS provides natural gas transportation and storage services with one of the largest underground natural gas storage systems in the United States. The multi-state pipeline system links to other major pipelines and to markets in the Midwest, Mid-Atlantic and Northeast regions. The system includes nearly 4,000 miles of pipeline and more than 985,000 horsepower of compression in six states: Ohio, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, New York, Maryland and Virginia.[1]

Expansion Project

The expansion will provide an additional 25 MMcf/d of natural gas from supply areas in Leidy, Pennsylvania to Virginia markets via installation of air inlet chiller systems at compressor stations along the EGTS’ PL-1 system. Developers have applied for FERC approval.[2]
