SHELTON, Conn., June 14, 2013

SHELTON, Conn., June 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Iroquois Gas Transmission
System, L.P. (Iroquois) announced today that it has filed an application with
the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) for a Certificate of Public
Convenience and Necessity to construct its Wright Interconnect Project (WIP).

The WIP is being developed in conjunction with the proposed Constitution
Pipeline (Constitution) to enable delivery of up to 650,000 Dth/d of natural
gas from the terminus of the Constitution Pipeline in Schoharie County, New
York into both Iroquois and the Tennessee Gas Pipeline under a 15-year
capacity lease agreement with Constitution. The estimated $75 million capital
project includes approximately 22,000 HP of transfer compression with cooling
and associated facilities. Iroquois will construct, own and operate the new
transfer compressor station utilizing its existing Wright Compressor Station
property in Wright, New York.

"Iroquois continues its goal to develop energy infrastructure projects that
will support reliability and supply diversity for our customers in New York
and New England in a safe and environmentally-sensitive manner," said Iroquois
President Jeff Bruner. "The Wright Interconnect Project eliminates the need
for Constitution's proposed compression facility, thereby connecting our
system to the rapidly expanding Marcellus supplies while reducing impact on
the environment and the Wright, New York community."

Iroquois has requested that FERC issue its Certificate by May 1, 2014 to meet
an in-service date of March 31, 2015.
