With its new $108 million liquefied natural gas (LNG) facility, Yankee Gas strengthened storage capacity to increase gas supply reliability and price stability. Over the long-term, the new LNG facility will help to decrease rates and stimulate the economic development of its 71 client communities.
Kleinfelder helped control costs, ensure a competitive bidding process, and managed a tight schedule. In addition to increased capacity and rate control, Yankee Gas received acknowledgement for the project’s environmental contribution. A difficult concept was accepted by the community and regulators, and the resulting award-winning project was completed on schedule within budget.
