HOUSTON, Aug. 4 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Texas Eastern Transmission,
LP, ("Texas Eastern"), a subsidiary of Spectra Energy (NYSE: SE), today

Market (TEAM) expansion program, a proposed expansion to transport emerging
Appalachian natural gas production to premium markets in the northeast
United States, including Mid-Atlantic and New England states.

"Our advantage is twofold -- an existing footprint in the region that
is well positioned to connect this new supply to market, and a strong track
record of designing and constructing cost-effective expansion projects that
are timed and sized to meet customers' needs," said Bill Yardley, group
vice president, Spectra Energy Transmission. "This project will allow
producers to connect their Appalachian supplies to premium markets, and
shippers to reach back to the increasing number of supply points in the
West Virginia and Pennsylvania regions."
The TEAM expansion program has a targeted capacity of approximately 300
million cubic feet per day (mmcf/d), but will be scaleable and sized to
meet customer needs. The expansion will utilize existing rights of way,
wherever possible, which will minimize both project costs and effects on
landowners and the environment.
The first phase of the scaleable expansion program is targeted to be in
service as early as November 1, 2011.
The non-binding open season runs from August 1, 2008, to August 29,
2008. Interested parties should contact Bob Riga at (617) 560-1436 or
firstname.lastname@example.org, or Sean Foley at (617) 560-1359 or
