In early 2012, Elkton Gas has determined that its Maryland LDC system includes 744 feet of pipe and appurtenant facilities crossing Maryland/Delaware border in order to reach a gate station owned and operated by Eastern Shore Natural Gas Company (Eastern Shore), known as the North Gate Station. Elkton Gas does not provide service in Delaware and is not subject to regulation by the Delaware Public Service Commission. Elkton Gas does not contemplate any changes in its operations as a result of this change in regulatory status. The purpose of owning facilities in Delaware is to bring gas to Maryland to serve Elkton Gas' customers in Maryland.
