$300 million plant to be located in Springfield Township

SPRINGFIELD -- A Springfield Township trustee confirmed a cryogenic gas-processing plant, being built by NiSource Midstream Services LLC  will be located at the corner of State Line and Middletown roads in the township.

Trustee Robert Orr said the plant, which is one part of a $300 million investment in the area, is planned along with the addition of several miles of pipeline in Springfield.

NiSource Midstream, a division of NiSource Energy Ventures, partnered with the Hilcorp Energy Company for the project, which is expected to create 20 permanent jobs.

The planned 50-mile, underground pipeline will pick up gas from various wells and potentially connect to other transmission pipelines to form the Hickory Bend Pipeline System.

The transmission lines will gather wet gas throughout Northeast Ohio and Western Pennsylvania at a rate of about 600 million cubic feet per day. That wet gas will then go into the processing plant in Springfield where it will be frozen to remove the wet gases at about 200 cubic feet of gas per day and the dry gas will be transported via an already existing transmission line.

The pipelines will have automatic shutoffs to avoid explosions and fires.

Orr said NiSource surveyed Springfield residents' properties over the summer to determine the best route of the pipeline and residents are signing off on whether or not they will allow the new pipeline to connect to their current pipelines.
