The Crossroads Gas Pipeline was originally built to transport oil in 1957, and was converted to natural gas by NIPSCO Industries in 1995. This conversion was part of a strategy to deliver natural gas from U.S. and Canadian supply basins through the Chicago area and into expanding eastern markets.
In 2016, the pipeline was purchased by TransCanada as part of a $10.2 billion acquisition of the Columbia Pipeline Group, a former NiSource subsidiary, that created one of the largest gas transmission networks in North America. According to TransCanada, the Crossroads Pipeline now has multiple interconnects including: Natural Gas Pipeline Company of America, Trunkline Gas Company, Vector Pipeline, and Panhandle Eastern that allow it to access mid-continent, Rocky Mountain, Gulf Coast, Permian, and Canadian supplies. Crossroads accesses markets in Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, Ohio, and in the East.
