Dominion (D) and Exterran Holdings, Inc. (EXH) will team up to provide increased natural gas processing in the Appalachian Basin.

Under an agreement signed by the companies, two natural gas processing plants will be designed, built and installed by Exterran. One will be an 8 million cubic feet per day capacity plant in Carlisle, Ohio, and the other a 10 million cubic feet per day capacity plant in Schultz, West Virginia. The two plants will be owned and operated by Exterran under a twelve-year services agreement with Dominion. Construction is expected to begin immediately. Commercial operation of the Carlisle plant is anticipated in January 2011 and commercial operation of the Schultz plant is anticipated in May 2011.

The Carlisle plant is expected to allow more local natural gas to be processed and delivered into the Dominion East Ohio local natural gas distribution system. The Schultz plant is expected to allow more local natural gas to be produced into Dominion's gathering system in West Virginia, processed, and then delivered to market through Dominion Transmission's interstate pipeline system.
