August 2008

TECO Energy announced the formation of a new subsidiary, SeaCoast Gas Transmission, LLC., to develop and own a high-volume Florida intrastate natural gas transmission pipeline.

This new subsidiary will provide TECO Energy with an opportunity to participate in a business line that complements its existing regulated businesses in Florida. The SeaCoast project is designed to provide improved and competitively priced access to natural gas supplies.

SeaCoast Gas has entered into an agreement with JEA (formerly Jacksonville Electric Authority), the company's first pipeline customer, that would provide for long-term transportation of natural gas to JEA's planned Greenland Energy Center. The intrastate pipeline would connect Southern Natural gas transmission pipelines to JEA's proposed power plant. The SeaCoast project is designed to provide improved and competitively priced access to natural gas supplies.

Given the expected growth of natural gas-fired electric generation in Florida and the availability of additional natural gas supplies in the Jacksonville area, SeaCoast Gas also is exploring opportunities for the future expansion of the pipeline in order to deliver natural gas to electric generators in the East Central Florida markets. This would provide an economic alternative for natural gas transportation to electric generators utilizing the expanded system, which could translate to savings for their customers.
