Dominion South Description

Includes all transactions within Dominion's South Pool, which is the portion of the pipeline that lies upstream of Valley Gate Junction in Allegheny County, PA. This includes the Pennsylvania portion of the system that lies south of Valley Gate Junction, along with the segments that are located in Ohio, Maryland, West Virginia, and Virginia. NOTE: NGI split its prior Dominion index into separate Dominion North Point and South Point indexes in April 2014. Prior to that, our Dominion index was a combination of North and South point deals. We at NGI did not see a meaningful volume of reported deals on Dominion North until late 2013, so for historical comparison purposes, our old Dominion index aligns most closely with our new Dominion South Point index.
