Virginia Gas wants to move ahead with its plan to build a new natural gas pipeline through Roanoke and Montgomery counties-- despite an offer from another company to share an existing easement.
(------------)
[VO-NAT]


In a letter to Duke Energy, Virginia Gas president Michael Edwards says co-locating a pipeline with an existing easement would create a number of major problems.
It would violate the company's agreement with Roanoke Gas.
A co-located line would not ensure additional capacity or increased reliability for the area.
It would also require a new compressor station in Montgomery County which would affect residents.
Virginia Gas's new pipeline already has federal approval, while a co-located line would have to go through the process again.
And Edwards also noted construction over an existing line could be dangerous.
[SUPER=03-Roanoke Co./File Tape]


The proposed line would affect more than 350 families.
Edwards says that's 100 fewer land owners than would be affected by a co-located line.
Opponents say Edwards' agruments are not supportable.
They'll hold a meeting tomorrow night at 7 at the Brambleton Center in Roanoke County.
