WILLIAMSVILLE, N.Y. (AP) ¿ A unit of National Fuel Gas Co. said Wednesday it is starting a binding open season to expand transportation capacity in the Marcellus Shale fairway in central Pennsylvania. The National Fuel Gas Supply Corp., which is part of the pipeline and storage segment of the company, will construct new pipeline and compression facilities largely along its existing infrastructure and will serve key northeast markets.
