FERC has approved Eastern Shore Natural Gas Company’s request to proceed with construction of the Summit Loop in New Castle County, Delaware; and the Hearns Pond Loop, Seaford to Millsboro Connector, and the Laurel Loop in Sussex County, Delaware as part of the 2017 Expansion Project.

The 2017 Expansion Project consists of approximately 23 miles of pipeline looping in Pennsylvania, Maryland and Delaware; upgrades to existing metering facilities; installation of an additional 3,550 horsepower compressor unit at the existing Daleville Compressor Station in Chester County, Pennsylvania; and approximately 17 miles of new mainline extension and the addition of two pressure control stations in Sussex County, Delaware. These new facilities are estimated to cost about $99 million. Eastern Shore Natural Gas estimates that it will generate gross margin of approximately $15.7 million in the first full year after the new transportation services go into effect.
