Matrix Service Inc., a subsidiary of Matrix Service Company, has been awarded the EPC contract to build Piedmont Natural Gas’ LNG facility in Robeson County, North Carolina.
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 60 acres of a 685- acre piece of Piedmont-owned property. Construction is expected to begin this month with an estimated completion date in the summer of 2021.
“Our highest priority is the safety of our natural gas infrastructure, our communities and our employees, said Frank Yoho, president of natural gas operations at Duke Energy, parent company of Piedmont Natural Gas. “The contractor we selected had to share our emphasis on safety, offer proven excellence in this specialized construction, and commit to minimize disruption to our neighbours in Robeson County.”
“As an industry leader in low-temperature and cryogenic tanks and terminals, we are very pleased to have been awarded this important project,” said Matrix Service Company’s President and Chief Executive Officer, John R. Hewitt. “We look forward to delivering this project safely, on time and on budget.”
