YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - Tony Paglia with the Mahoning Regional chamber can't predict the future but the big news of a new pipeline certainly gives him hope.

Pennant midstream announced construction of a 12 inch, 38 mile natural gas liquids pipeline from the Hickory Bend Cryogenic processing plant in New Middletown to a facility in Kensington. It's a $60 million investment.

"What it tells us is, there is going to be sufficient supply of natural gas liquids to warrant such an expenditure and that it's also continuing the connections that we need, the infrastructure connections, the pipeline connections so that we can go into more of a full production," says Paglia.

More production means more jobs for our workers here in the Valley.

"Once you put a pipeline in, you have to inspect that pipeline, maintain that pipeline, so they actually create full time permanent jobs taking care of those pipelines so those are additional jobs for this area," Paglia says.

The Hickory Bend processing plant is expected to go online in December with the pipeline operational by July of next year.

"Once the testing is completed, once the pipeline is completed and the indications are, there are some good things going on out there. We're going to see some intensive production and drilling going on which should continue to benefit our area," Paglia says.
