Ohio Power Siting Board Approves Natural Gas Pipeline Route

The Ohio Power Siting Board (OPSB) has approved a route for Duke Energy’s Central Corridor natural gas pipeline following a review of the company’s application and hearings on the 14-mile project.

In its ruling, the OPSB concluded the best route for the Central Corridor distribution pipeline is the proposed western or alternate route that runs through southwestern Ohio.

The pipeline will connect an existing Duke Energy Ohio pipeline near the intersection of Butler, Warren and Hamilton counties with an existing company pipeline in the Norwood area.

The new 20-inch distribution pipeline will help the company balance the natural gas supply, improve the company’s natural gas infrastructure and enable retirement of propane peaking facilities that are used to supplement the local natural gas supply on the coldest days of the year.

Pipeline construction is expected to begin at the northern end of the route in late fall of 2020 and be complete by the end of 2021.
