Natural gas is one of the most environmentally friendly and energy efficient forms of energy production, but many states have struggled to find a viable natural gas connection.
Now, a natural gas-based pipeline is being developed in California that could provide a cheap, reliable source of natural gas for local communities.
The $2 billion, 1,100-mile natural gas pipe was developed by a consortium led by California Natural Gas, which has its own line of gas pipeline in the state.
It is also expected to become operational in 2017.
“The natural gas supply from the Bay Area is the most reliable natural gas in the world,” said Lisa Miller, a senior vice president at California Natural.
“This pipeline provides a high-capacity natural gas line for California to supply our community, and we’re looking forward to building it.”
The new pipeline would connect the southern portion of the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta region to the San Francisco Bay, and it would be the largest natural gas conduit in the nation.
It would also be the first natural gas transmission line in the country.
The project is the first of its kind in California, and the first time it has been built in the United States.
The Natural Gas Connector project was initially expected to cost $9 billion.
But the consortium that built it, GasCano Natural Gas Inc., is hoping to reduce the price by as much as 90 percent.
The pipeline would be able to carry natural gas from the northern part of the San Joaquin Valley to the eastern part of San Francisco.
The California Department of Transportation has estimated the cost to connect to the Bay area at $2.8 billion.
California has more than 800 miles of natural water and natural gas pipelines.
California is the third-largest natural gas producer in the U.S., behind Texas and New Mexico.
Natural gas supplies about 2.3 million barrels per day to the state, but the pipeline is not expected to be able supply much more than 1.8 million barrels of gas per day.
California Natural is one the largest suppliers of natural resources to the United Nations, according to its website.
