Shale related company plans announcement in Springfield Township

Posted: Updated:

HOUSTON, Tex. - A company that's part of the current shale boom is expected to officially announce plans to build a $300-million natural gas processing plant in Mahoning county.

According to a news release from NiSource Midstream Services, the company next week will make a funding announcement affecting local communities.

The release says that company executives will be joined by officials from Springfield Township and Mahoning County to make the announcement at 8:00 a.m. Monday at the township administration building.

Springfield Township Trustee Bob Orr told 21 News earlier that NiSource planned to build a facility there to separate natural gas and other energy products from area wells.

Orr said that the cryogenics facility will be built on 100 acres of land at Stateline and Middletown Roads.

Seismic testing on the property was conducted earlier.

Orr said this would be the second largest investment ever in the township.

20 permanent jobs will be created, and construction is expected to be complete by December.
