Columbia Gas Transmission is a subsidiary of NiSource and a major natural gas transmission firm in West Virginia.

Columbia operates two natural gas storage fields in Marshall County, West Virginia named Victory A and Victory B. Six million cubic feet of natural gas and recyclables flow through these fields annually.

Majorsville, West Virginia, near the Pennsylvania border, was to be the site of a natural gas processing plant plant the company planned along with partners, MarkWest, Chesapeake and Statoil. Columbia Gas pipelines in Marshall and Wetzel counties in northern West Virginia, along with pipelines in Washington and Greene Counties in southwestern Pennsylvania, were to gather gas for the processing plant where it was to be prepared for sale. The target date for the plant to go online was January, 2009. The plant was eventually expected to have capacity to process 200 Mmcf/d. Update: A news item in September, 2010 clarified that the Marshall Co. plant had apparently gone online in early September, 2010 with initial flow through of 135 Mmcf/d. The report further noted that 40 miles of transmission pipe had been converted to gathering lines for wet gas with a total capacity of 400 Mmcf/d. Two new cryogenic processing units had been installed and an idle compressor station reactivated.

Also in 2009, Columbia completed the Appalachian Expansion Project providing two compressor stations and a replacement pipeline in Lincoln County, WV.
