Last week, the U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission approved a request by TransCanada Corp’s Columbia Gas Transmission unit to put part of its WB XPress natural gas pipeline project into service in West Virginia, according to Nasdaq.

The FERC said in a filing approving the startup of the $900 million project that Columbia has “adequately stabilized the areas disturbed by construction and that restoration is proceeding satisfactorily.”

This pipeline is one of several designed to connect growing output in the Marcellus and Utica shale basins in Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Ohio with customers in other parts of the country, as well as, Canada.
