Eastern Build of WB XPress is placed in service

TransCanada Corporation (TransCanada) has announced that the Eastern Build of WB XPress has been placed into service, completing the final phase of a critical natural gas infrastructure project that provides Appalachian producers with access to Mid-Atlantic markets.

The Eastern Build of WBX spans various counties in West Virginia and Virginia and is designed to move approximately 0.5 billion cubic feet (Bcf/d) of natural gas per day. The build also included construction of the Chantilly Compressor station in Chantilly, Virginia, along with associated pipeline and facilities.

Recently, WBX’s Western Build was placed into service. In total, WBX is an approximate USD 900M 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 kilometres) of pipeline looping and modifications to seven existing compressor stations, allowing an additional 1.3 Bcf/d of natural gas to flow. The project is part of TransCanada’s USD 36B portfolio of commercially secured projects underway for completion through 2023.

Throughout the project, TransCanada representatives worked closely with federal regulators, landowners and numerous state and local officials to ensure they were a part of the process from construction to completion. WBX was designed and constructed with a core focus on safety and minimizing environmental impact.
