TC Energy announced that it has placed its Buckeye XPress (BXP) project in service 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," added Stanley Chapman.
