Callahan Pipeline Completed in Northeast Florida

(P&GJ) — Affiliates of Chesapeake Utilities and TECO Peoples Gas have completed the 27-mile Callahan Intrastate pipeline, underpinning natural gas service expansion in two Florida counties.

The project was jointly developed by Chesapeake's Peninsula Pipeline Company and SeaCoast Gas Transmission, an affiliate of Tampa-based Peoples Gas.

The Callahan Intrastate Pipeline facilities include a 26.5-mile-long joint natural gas pipeline, which initiates from a gate station that was recently commissioned on the Southern Natural Gas Cypress Interstate Pipeline near Crawford Road in Callahan, Florida to Radio Avenue and Highway 17 in Yulee, Florida.

The new supply source will enable both Chesapeake's Florida Public Utilities Company (FPUC) and Peoples Gas to expand natural gas distribution service in this growing area of Florida.  FPUC and Peoples Gas previously worked together in 2012 to introduce natural gas service to Nassau County.

"This partnership provides an environmentally friendly, practical and cost-effective energy solution to underserved communities in northeast Florida while providing the additional capacity needed to support future growth in the region," said Jeff Householder, president and CEO of Chesapeake Utilities.

T.J. Szelistowski, president of Peoples Gas, added, "This pipeline will support economic recovery and new development throughout northeast Florida, allowing homes and businesses to have more energy choices."

Peninsula Pipeline constructed, partially owns and will fully maintain the pipeline, the companies said.
