Murrysville council gives approval for compressor station expansion

Friday, January 12, 2018 by


After receiving approval from the local council, Dominion Energy officials are planning to begin large-scale expansion of a natural gas compressor station in Murrysville, Pennsylvania, this coming March, according to Trib Total Media.

The Murrysville council approved both a site plan and a conditional-use permit to expand the JB Tonkin compressor station off Mamont Road. The expansion is part of a $460 million regional project that includes compressor facilities in Greene County.

Dominion’s objective is to add a compressor unit that would be housed in its own building — a motor-control building that would include offices, an auxiliary building with a backup generator, an air system and hot-water boiler and a building housing valves and other equipment.
