Abstract: Commonwealth Natural Gas Corp. owns and operates a pipeline system which transports and sells natural gas to six customers within the southeastern part of Virginia. All of the gas purchased by these customers since 1950 has been supplied by Columbia Gas Transmission Corp. and Transcontinental Gas Pipe Line Corporation. Faced with the ever increasing shortage of natural gas resulting from curtailed deliveries by the suppliers, Commonwealth recognized the need for a supply of substitute natural gas, A source of imported butane was secured and a contract negotiated in May 1972 to build a plant at Chesapeake, Va.. adjacent to an import and storage terminal venture in which Commonwealth was participating.
