A New Approach to Energy Savings for Your Next Manufacturing Plant
6 Jul 2021
With the rapid increase in natural gas production and over two million miles of natural gas pipelines throughout the U.S., many corporate officials expect accessing gas infrastructure and service to be simple. Unfortunately, many prime industrial sites lack adequate pipeline infrastructure, and project managers have found it increasingly difficult and complex to develop new pipelines.
No Pipeline = No Gas
Manufacturers typically look to either a local gas distribution company (LDC) or an interstate transmission company to secure access to the energy and manufacturing feedstocks they need. While both good options, often the parties have divergent business objectives. This can result in expensive, long-lead-time projects or worse, disinterest in building new infrastructure for your plant — forcing you to eliminate an otherwise competitive site.
