South Nashville Pipeline Project
April 15, 2013 - Piedmont Natural Gas is beginning construction of its new South Nashville Pipeline. The first phase of construction involves clearing of various areas along the pipeline route.
Sheehan Pipe Line Construction Company is the general contractor for the project and the oldest privately owned pipeline contractor in the United States. If you have any questions or concerns with the pipeline construction process, please contact Sheehan Pipeline at firstname.lastname@example.org. Overseeing project safety for Sheehan Pipe Line Construction is Rick Sparks.
When completed in late 2013, the new natural gas pipeline will be approximately 13.5 miles in length and run from an existing natural gas transmission line near Shire Drive and owned by Columbia Gulf to Piedmont Natural Gas' existing 12-inch distribution pipeline on Chickering Road. The route will generally follow an existing TVA right of way. The new pipeline will help Piedmont comply with new Federal Department of Transportation pipeline safety and inspection standards—applicable to all natural gas utilities and pipeline system operators. This will allow for the use of now required pipeline inspection technology. The new technology will provide an additional tool with which natural gas utilities and pipeline operators can inspect their natural gas delivery systems to help ensure the continued safe delivery of natural gas to their customers. The new pipeline will also:
- Increase the capacity of our natural gas delivery system in our growing Nashville and middle-Tennessee markets.
- Provide added flexibility in our purchase of clean, efficient and economical natural gas supplies for our customers.
