Charleston Project goes into service
Dominion Energy Carolina Gas Transmission’s (DECGT) Charleston Project went into service on March 1, 2018, after receiving authorization from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. The project will help meet the growing regional need for clean, reliable and domestic natural gas by providing 80,000 dekatherms per day — enough to serve about 73,000 households on a typical winter day — of firm transportation service to three customers in Charleston, Dillon, Lexington and Marlboro counties. Counties along the pipeline route will benefit from a new source of property tax revenue, estimated to be approximately $1.5 million per year.
The $125 million natural gas infrastructure project is 100 percent dedicated to customers in South Carolina, with nearly 94 percent of the capacity serving South Carolina Electric & Gas and its customers. The remaining capacity will serve other businesses across the state.
The project included 55 miles of new 12-inch diameter natural gas pipeline from Moore to Chappells, S.C., five miles of new 4-inch natural gas pipeline in Dillon, S.C., a new compressor station in Dorchester County and upgrades to an existing compressor station in Spartanburg County.
