 PITTSBURGH, Nov. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Consolidated Natural Gas Company (NYSE: CNG) has expanded its service area to North Carolina, transporting and storing 30 million cubic feet of natural gas a day for Public Service Company of North Carolina, Inc.
 CNG Transmission, Consolidated's interstate pipeline subsidiary in Clarksburg, West Virginia, recently began its first service to North Carolina under a 20-year contract with Public Service. For several years, Consolidated has been expanding its interstate pipeline system to carry more gas to the East Coast, including New York City, Baltimore, Washington, D.C., and Virginia.
 Public Service, headquartered in Gastonia, N.C., has as the majority of its market the expanding Interstate 85 corridor, including the "Research Triangle" cities of Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill. It distributes natural gas to more than 260,000 customers in 87 communities.
 Initially, Public Service is taking about 18.3 million cubic feet of gas in firm transportation and 11.7 million cubic feet in storage. CNG Transmission is delivering supplies to Nokesville, Virginia, where it built a pipeline in 1991 that connects with a line owned by Transcontinental Gas Pipe Line Corporation (Transco). Transco then delivers the gas to North Carolina.
 Consolidated is one of the nation's largest producers, transporters and distributors of natural gas. Its primary marketing areas for natural gas are in Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia, New York and other states in the Northeast. The company explores for and produces natural gas and oil throughout the United States.
