Gas, New Projects

Natural gas pipeline finished near power plant site

Piedmont Natural Gas (NYSE: PNY) completed the Sutton Pipeline Project, which will deliver natural gas to the 625 MW Sutton combined-cycle natural gas-fired power plant in North Carolina. The plant is expected to begin commercial operations in late 2013.

The pipeline construction included 120 miles of 20-inch natural gas transmission pipeline, 8 miles of 30-inch natural gas transmission pipeline and approximately 25,000 HP of additional compression facilities on Piedmont’s system.

Duke Energy (NYSE: DUK) said it would retire 575 MW of coal-fired units at the Sutton plant by late 2013.
