New Jersey Gas Utility Pipeline Project Named Project of the Year

A gas main upgrade project from Public Service Electric and Gas Co. (PSE&G) has been named as Project of the Year by the Project Management Institute–New Jersey Chapter (PMINJ).

The project is part of the company’s Gas System Modernization Program, a three-year, $905 million program which launched in 2016.

Over the course of the project, the company replaced more than 500 miles of gas mains and approximately 38,000 services lines. The program allowed the company to upgrade its cast iron and steel gas lines with plastic pipe.

The second phase of the project, GSMP II, will cover an additional 875 miles of pipes and other gas infrastructure improvements through 2023. The $1.9 billion in infrastructure upgrades under GSMP II, which launched January 2019, are expected to replace up to 875 miles of aging cast iron and unprotected steel gas pipes with plastic piping.

In addition, GSMP II is expected to enable the installation of excess flow valves that automatically shut off gas flow if a service line is damaged, and better support the use of high-efficiency appliances.
