GREAT LAKES JOINS WILDERNESS PROJECT

 DETROIT, Jan. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Great Lakes Gas Transmission L.P. (Great Lakes) announced today that it has entered into a partnership to transport new supplies of natural gas produced in northern Michigan.
 The Wilderness Energy Services Partnership is a joint venture among Great Lakes, Mercury Exploration Company and subsidiaries of Dominion Energy, Inc. It consists of two pipelines with a combined capacity of up to 200 million cubic feet a day, a volume that can be increased with minor compression, and a processing plant which extracts carbon dioxide from the gas before it enters the Great Lakes system. The new facilities, located in Michigan's Otsego County near Great Lakes' interconnections with ANR Pipeline Company, were operational on Dec. 7, 1993.
 "With the increased drilling activity in northern Michigan, substantial natural gas production, particularly from the Antrim shale formation, will come on line in the next few years," said Derek Henwood, president and chief executive officer of Great Lakes. "The Wilderness project, giving Michigan producers direct access to Great Lakes' interstate pipeline system, opens new market opportunities for this gas and should further stimulate production in this area."
 Parties interested in obtaining information regarding transporting Michigan production to markets along the Great Lakes system should contact Cliff Rupnow, director, business development, at 313-596-4554.
 Mercury Exploration Company, with offices in Fort Worth, Texas, and Gaylord, Mich., is a wholly owned subsidiary of Mercury Production Company, which is primarily involved in the exploration and production of natural gas and oil.
 Dominion Energy, Inc. is a Virginia-based independent power company principally involved in competitive electric power generation in the United States and Latin America. It is also involved in natural gas development through its Dominion Reserves subsidiary.
 Great Lakes is a 1,960-mile interstate pipeline that transports natural gas to customers in the United States and eastern Canada. The Detroit-based company is equally owned by The Coastal Corporation (NYSE: CGP), a Houston-based energy holding company, and TransCanada PipeLines Limited, headquartered in Calgary, Alberta.
