TransCanada hopes to move 1.5 billion cubic feet of natural gas per day through Marshall and Monroe counties by the end of this year via the 36-inch diameter Leach XPress pipeline. Officials with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission on 19th January, 2017 approved the $1.4 billion project designed to ship dry methane natural gas from a Majorsville compressor station in Marshall County to a compressor station in West Virginia, near Huntington. FERC also approved the Rayne XPress project, which primarily consists of two new compressor stations along TransCanada’s existing Columbia Gulf system, which the company believe will facilitate transportation of Marcellus and Utica shale natural gas.
