Boardwalk Pipeline Partners, LP (NYSE:BWP) (the “Partnership”) today announced that it has priced the public offering of 11,000,000 common units at $30.12 per unit. The Partnership expects the offering to close on June 4, 2013. The Partnership has granted the underwriters a 30-day option to purchase up to an additional 1,650,000 common units.
