CHARLOTTE, N.C., June 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Piedmont Natural Gas (NYSE: PNY) today announced an agreement with Duke Energy to provide natural gas delivery service to the electric utility's W.S. Lee power generation facility near Anderson, South Carolina.

Piedmont plans to construct approximately 1.5 miles of new natural gas transmission pipeline and compression facilities to provide natural gas delivery service to the plant by May, 2017.  Piedmont's investment in the pipeline and compression facilities is estimated at $38 million and is supported by a long-term service agreement with Duke Energy.  The agreement is subject to approval by the South Carolina Public Service Commission.
