East End Gas Works Project
Propane is an odorless gas that is a byproduct of natural gas processing. It is used as an alternative energy source to natural gas, especially in rural areas where natural gas may not be available. Propane was used by Duke Energy to supplement the natural gas supply during the coldest days of the year.
Trucking the remaining propane out of the site isn’t feasible.
No. The flaring will not be visible since it is being done within an enclosed structure. There will be limited air emissions from the flaring process.
We do not anticipate any odors associated with the flaring.
Use of a flare should not produce any noise (other than at the flare site) since the work is being done in enclosed structures. There will be an increase in activity at the site so you may hear trucks coming and going more frequently.
Yes. We have notified local officials and first responders, in addition to the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio, neighbors, local businesses and special interest groups.
Yes. We have already obtained a permit from the Ohio EPA to conduct the flaring operations.
We will work closely with environmental regulators on all compliance requirements.
No. We do not intend to sell the property. A new natural gas regulator station will be built at the East End site starting in 2023 with restoration to follow in 2024.
