Wells to be expanded at a storage site
(2007-04-05)
(WOUB) - A natural gas company says seven wells will be expanded and six new ones drilled at a storage site in Hocking County.

The announcement is from Columbia Gas Transmission which already has begun pumping natural gas into a new underground storage field in West Virginia.

A spokeswoman for the firm also expects to file for federal approval soon to build more than 15 miles of new pipeline and expand underground storage areas in West Virginia and Ohio.

Gas companies fill storage fields during the summer so they will have enough natural gas for customers in the winter.
