Wood has been awarded a US$34 million contract from RH energytrans LLC to construct 28 miles of new pipeline designed to carry natural gas from Pennsylvania to Ohio.

Awarded through a competitive tender process, Wood’s scope also includes the construction of the North Kingsville meter station in Ashtabula County, Ohio.

The project is underway and is expected to be completed in summer 2019. 

Andrew Stewart, CEO of Wood’s Asset Solutions Americas business, said: “We’re delighted to be playing a key role in this strategic project, helping to support the supply of domestic energy to Northeast Ohio communities and industries who have had limited access to natural gas sources.

“This award strengthens our leading position in the North America market, where we have the largest and most vertically integrated pipeline project offering. We will fully leverage our broad capability to deliver this project, bringing together the strength of Wood’s expertise to maximise value for our customer. Wood provided the initial technical, environmental consulting and engineering services on this project. We now look forward to progressing that support to the construction phase.”

The Risberg pipeline will connect to approximately 32 miles of existing pipeline, originating in the Meadville, Pennsylvaniaarea, extending in a northwest direction and terminating at the North Kingsville Meter Station. 

Approximately 16 miles of new pipeline will be installed in Pennsylvania and 12 miles in Ohio.
