A natural gas pipeline system is in the works for an Ohio town.
It’s called Spire Natural Gas, and it’s a major part of a $5.5 billion project to replace an aging natural gas transmission line.
It was built by Ohio-based pipeline builder Spire and will be completed in 2019.
The company plans to have the natural gas lines built by 2022.
Spire says it will also use the natural-gas transmission lines for transportation and energy generation.
The project is expected to create up to 3,500 jobs and cost about $2 billion, according to the company.
Spires natural gas project also will be built to include the following services: 1.
Pipelines to bring natural gas from nearby natural gas wells to a regional distribution hub that will be linked to the distribution hub for gas to be piped to the customer.
Transmission line to supply the new natural gas distribution hub with natural gas to serve customers in the eastern part of the state.
Piping facility for natural gas used to deliver gas to the transmission hub for transmission to the new distribution hub.
Pipeline to supply natural gas service to nearby power plants.
Distribution center for natural-gase transmission to service the power plants in the southeastern part of Ohio.
Spired is working with a consortium of companies to bring the project to completion.
It says it expects to generate $1.2 billion in revenue over the first decade.
The Spire project also involves construction of a new, more efficient transmission system and a new gas distribution center, among other projects.
