TC Energy’s U.S. Natural Gas team started the new year on a high note, placing into service its Buckeye XPress (BXP) project in southern Ohio.

The milestone comes just in time as winter weather permeates the U.S. Midwest and temperatures drop, according to a Jan. 19 company statement. BXP adds approximately 275 million cubic feet per day (MMcf/d) of natural gas produced in the region and will be used to heat and power homes and businesses for years to come.

“The in-service milestone demonstrates our commitment to delivering the energy Americans need, every day,” said Stanley Chapman III, TC Energy executive vice president and president the company’s U.S. and Mexico Natural Gas Pipelines. “BXP improves reliability along a critical natural gas supply route in southern Ohio and helped support local economies during a difficult year.

“I am proud of our team for completing this project safely and with stewardship for the environment,” Stan added.

BXP involved the replacement of 66 miles of existing pipeline with safer, more reliable, 36-in. diameter coated pipe, enhancing the sustainability of TC Energy’s infrastructure.

The project proceeded cautiously in a year beset by a global pandemic and an economic slowdown. TC Energy worked with its contractors to come up with a comprehensive COVID-19 response plan. The company hired locally and enlisted a few local restaurants and cafés to feed its crews. TC Energy also donated to food pantries and emergency medical services.
