Boardwalk Pipeline subsidiaries to build two pipelines.

Boardwalk Pipeline's subsidiaries Gulf South Pipeline Company, Texas Gas Transmission and Energy Transfer Partners L.P. are jointly developing two independently owned and operated pipelines.

Gulf South's plans involve construction of a 275-mile, 36-inch diameter pipeline with an initial capacity of 1 Bcf/d that will originate in Carthage, where it will interconnect with Energy Transfer's pipelines, and then be connected to Gulf South's existing high pressure mainline system in Louisiana and Mississippi and with Texas Gas' high pressure mainlines in Louisiana. In addition to its previously announced pipeline construction projects, Energy Transfer anticipates developing a 36-mile, 36-inch diameter pipeline from its Texoma pipeline to Carthage. This is in addition to the already announced 85-mile, 36-inch diameter pipeline from its Bethel gas storage facility in Anderson County, TX, to its 30-inch Texoma Houston Pipeline facility in Rusk County, TX. Moreover, the company says an additional expansion is being considered west of Bethel into the Fort Worth area.

Although no definitive dates are available at this time, both systems are expected to be in service by 2007.
