Mountaineer Gas Co. has filed an application with West Virginia regulators for a major natural gas distribution line expansion in Berkeley, Jefferson and Morgan counties.

The company's senior vice president, Moses Skaff, tells The Journal of Martinsburg that the proposed project would run a 27-mile distribution line from a Columbia Gas transmission line in Pennsylvania to Berkeley Springs and then onto the north end of Martinsburg.

Skaff says the project's second phase would run a 29-mile line extension from Martinsburg through Jefferson County to Charles Town and Ranson, Middleway and Shepherdstown.

He says the projected cost of the 56-mile line extension is about $45 million. He says specific routes have not been determined yet, but the company has laid out five-mile-wide corridors through which the line could go.
