NIPSCO Completes $180 Million Gas Pipeline Extension in Kokomo, Indiana

(P&GJ) — NIPSCO has announced the completion of the installation of nearly 19 miles of new 24-inch steel gas pipeline. This pipeline will service the new battery plant in Kokomo, Indiana, providing a safe and reliable source of natural gas for the future.

This new gas system expansion also supports opportunity for future economic growth in Cass, Howard, and Miami Counties; the project included an additional 800 feet of 16-inch steel pipeline, safety enhancements to the existing Walton gas regulator station, and a new customer station in Kokomo that will serve as a dual gas supply to the battery pant as well as the Greater Kokomo area.  

“NIPSCO is steadfast in the economic development sector, providing the essential energy delivery service needed to grow communities,” Rick Calinski, NIPSCO director of economic development and public affairs, said. “Our team diligently works to forge positive relationships with new industries and businesses looking to build here in northern Indiana. This new gas system expansion is an example of how NIPSCO supports regional economic growth, and the successful completion of the work was possible through the support of local community leaders and stakeholders. We value these relationships and thank all who were involved.” 

The company is proud to share that through this work, there were more than 250 local union and trade workers employed. This job creation initiative has a ripple effect to the local economy, bringing in new business to local restaurants, housing and overall positively impacting the surrounding communities.
