Dominion Transmission’s Myersville compressor station went into service earlier this month to help meet the demand for natural gas for Washington Gas Light and Baltimore Gas & Electric customers, the company announced, adding that a second compressor is on the drawing board for the same location.

Spokesman Frank Mack said two companies that are building natural gas-fired power stations to generate electricity need more natural gas, requiring Dominion Transmission to add a second compressor at the Myersville station and make other upgrades to its system in Pennsylvania and Virginia. If approved, the new station is predicted to provide service by October 2017.
