Piedmont Natural Gas is to build and operate a $250m LNG facility in Robeson County, N.C. The facility will help Piedmont Natural Gas continue providing customers with a reliable supply of natural gas during peak usage days, when extremely low temperatures create a higher-than-normal demand for natural gas.
The 1 billion-cubic-foot (Bcf) storage facility will cover approximately 50 acres of a 685-acre piece of Piedmont-owned property. Construction is expected to begin in the summer of 2019 with an estimated completion date in the summer of 2021.
“We continually make investments in our natural gas infrastructure as part of our commitment to providing safe, reliable and affordable natural gas for our customers,” said Frank Yoho, president of natural gas operations. “This facility is the most cost-effective solution to meet peak-day demand.”
The project will be the fourth LNG facility Piedmont owns and operates. The other facilities are located in Nashville, Tenn., Bentonville, N.C., and Huntersville, N.C.
