1) Sumas, WA
2) Eastport, ID
3) Babb, MT
4) Port of Morgan, MT

Generally, sites west of the Rockies are net importers while sites around the Great Lakes are net exporters from the burgeoning producing fields of Appalachia. The Eastport, ID site via the Gas Transmission Northwest pipeline has the greatest import capacity while the St. Clair, MI border crossing has the greatest export capacity, via the Vector and Great Lakes pipelines.
