Dozens of people gathered in North Kingsville on Friday to celebrate the ribbon cutting for a new natural gas pipeline.
Seven people cut the ribbon on the Risberg Pipeline, which runs from Meadville, Pennsylvania, to North Kingsville. The pipeline, which was expected to cost $86 million, is comprised of 30 miles of existing pipeline and 28 miles of new pipeline, 12 of which was built in Ashtabula County.
“We have known for a long time that this part of Ohio was in need of natural gas supply, to support not only existing businesses, but also new business opportunities,” Oivind Risberg, owner and CEO of RH energytrans, said to the assembled crowd.
“I’m very happy that we spent the last few years 100 percent dedicated to get gas in here, because I got tired of listening to the need for natural gas supply when we have so much of it underneath us,” Risberg said.
Risberg praised the state of Ohio, and how welcoming the state is to businesses.Click right here to continue reading.
