Clarke & Co. Adds Northeast Utility Client

BOSTON Clarke & Co., the independent public relations agency here, said it has added Iroquois Gas Transmission System to its roster.

Clarke & Co. will provide public affairs support for the client, a partnership of 10 U.S. and Canadian energy concerns. The addition underscores the shop’s expertise in the energy sector, said Carl Gustin, agency president., in a statement. “We’re pleased to have been selected for another key assignment by an industry leader.”

The client owns a 400-mile interstate natural gas pipeline extending from the U.S.-Canadian border at Washington, N.Y., through to Long Island, N.Y. Iroquois is completing construction of a 37-mile extension of its system from Long Island to metropolitan New York City, and Clarke will provide communications assistance to the Shelton, Conn., client on the project.
