Wood has won a $34 million contract from RH energytrans to construct 28 miles of new pipeline designed to carry natural gas from Pennsylvania to Ohio. The project is underway and is expected to be completed in Summer 2019.

Awarded through a competitive tender process, Wood’s scope also includes the construction of the North Kingsville meter station in Ashtabula County, Ohio.

Andrew Stewart, CEO of Wood’s Asset Solutions Americas business, said: “We’re delighted to be playing a key role in this strategic project, helping to support the supply of domestic energy to Northeast Ohio communities and industries who have had limited access to natural gas sources.

The Risberg pipeline will connect to approximately 32 miles of existing pipeline, originating in the Meadville, Pennsylvania area, extending in a northwest direction and terminating at the North Kingsville Meter Station.

Approximately 16 miles of new pipeline will be installed in Pennsylvania and 12 miles in Ohio.
