DTE Gas to upgrade natural gas pipeline infrastructure in Michigan

WCN Editorial Team 17 Mar 2016 NORTH AMERICA ENERGY & UTILITIES

DTE Gas has announced plans to invest $1.4bn to modernise its natural gas pipeline infrastructure in Michigan over the next five years.

The investment will be used to upgrade the company’s cast iron and steel main pipelines with newer and more durable material, as well as for installation of new service lines for homes and businesses. Over 100 miles of gas main lines are due to be replaced this year.

Work will also involve the relocation of natural gas meters from the interior portion of homes and businesses and replacing them with modernised meters on the exterior, and upgrades to the compressor stations.

DTE Gas president and COO Mark Stiers said: "Replacing older gas lines with the latest in pipeline material ensures that our natural gas system remains safe for our customers. The key to maintaining a safe pipeline system is our regular inspections and maintenance of the lines."
