What about the pressure in the (25-year-old) pipe?

Pressure in the 25-year-old 10” pipe is currently at 2,160 lbs./sq.in. (about 147 times atmospheric pressure). The increased compressor power at Eagle Ridge will result in significantly increased pressure. How well the pipe can withstand this pressure without rupturing is a major question for Fortis.
