TGP experienced significantly higher throughput for natural gas fired power generation in both the third quarter and for the first nine months, as power operators continued to consume more natural gas. TGP’s gas-fired power generation volumes increased by 8 percent versus the third quarter of 2011 and by 20 percent during the first nine months of this year compared to the same period a year ago.Overall segment transport volumes (including volumes from acquired pipelines for all periods) were up 11 percent in the third quarter compared to the same period last year attributable to higher volumes on Fayetteville Express and solid transport volumes on the Texas intrastate pipeline system, due in part to Eagle Ford Gathering volumes. Sales volumes on the Texas intrastates were up 6 percent compared to the third quarter of 2011.
