Share

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission has approved Eastern Shore Natural Gas’s plan to construct pipeline and compression facilities. Eastern Shore is Chesapeake Utilities Corporation’s interstate natural gas transmission subsidiary.

The project is estimated to cost approximately $36 million.

The project will include 10.1 miles of pipeline, including 2.5 miles of 16-inch pipeline looping in New Castle County and 7.6 miles of 16-inch pipeline looping in Kent County. It will add 1,775 horsepower of additional compression at Eastern Shore’s existing Bridgeville Compressor Station in Sussex County.

The project is anticipated to be completed by the end of the first quarter of 2017.
