The expansion project is intended to increase the pipelines compression capability, to deliver natural gas from Malin, Oregon, USA to the Reno Nevada, USA market In May 2021, FERC issued a certificate to Tuscarora Gas Transmission Company to build and operate the Tuscarora XPress Project expansion.[5] The project was expected to be in service by November 2021; as of October 2021, the operator had requested permission to begin operating.

As of January 2022, there was no evidence that the project had been commissioned within 2021 as initially intended[3], so it is still considered under construction, now with a start year of 2022.
