Pipeline & Storage
National Fuel Gas Supply Corporation provides interstate natural gas transmission and storage for affiliated and nonaffiliated companies through an integrated gas pipeline system that extends 2,877 miles from southwestern Pennsylvania to the New York-Canadian border at the Niagara River.
The Empire Pipeline, Empire Pipeline started operations in 1993 as a 157-mile natural gas transmission pipeline. Empire's transportation of high-pressure natural gas begins with the receipt of natural gas at its interconnection with the TransCanada Pipeline at a point near Buffalo, NY. This natural gas is then delivered to large manufacturing facilities, local gas utilities and electric generation plants that are located along its pipeline route throughout Western and Central New York continuing east to the Syracuse, NY area. These local gas utilities and electric generators rely on this delivered natural gas to dependably provide energy to over 1 million consumers.
