Okla. company breaking ground on W.Va. pipeline

Posted: Updated:

BEECH BOTTOM, W.Va. (AP) - Work is getting underway on a new $75 million gas pipeline through West Virginia.

The Business Development Corp. of the Northern Panhandle says Tulsa, Okla.-based Sheehan Pipe Line Construction is breaking ground Wednesday on a line running from Canonsburg, Pa., to Hopedale, Ohio.

BDC Director Pat Ford says the project will employ about 500 union workers, including welders, fitters and engineers.

Ford's group also has a new tenant in the former Wheeling Corrugating factory in Beech Bottom.

Ohio-based Integrity Kokosing Pipe Line Services is creating a 2-acre staging yard for equipment, materials, office trailers and personnel.

Ford says Integrity has already begun construction of a natural gas pipeline near Wellsburg.

Its new 8- and 6-inch-diameter lines will gather gas from newly built well pads and feed it into existing pipelines.
