BERLIN, Conn., April 18, 2005 (NYSE: NU) – Yankee Gas Services Company is a Program Sponsor of Eastern Connecticut's Regional Construction Forecast, one of a series of regional presentations hosted by the Construction Institute. The program will be held Wednesday, April 27 at the Evans Hall Auditorium at Connecticut College in New London, Connecticut. Registration begins at 7:45 a.m. and the presentation runs from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m.

The program, titled, "Looking to the future…Opportunities and Challenges" will focus on the scope and timing or major public and private capital projects in Eastern Connecticut, as well as industry trends and the process for “winning” the work.
