The southern portion of the pipeline will connect local gas production of Southwestern Energy to the Tennessee Gas Pipeline in Lenox Township, Pa. The pipeline has a capacity of 275 million cubic feet per day. The remaining 32 miles of pipeline will interconnect with the Millennium Pipeline in Sanford, N.Y. and should be completed in January 2013.
