Saibu Gas to Build New Pipeline

Fukuoka-based Saibu Gas has announced it will build a high pressure gas pipeline to transport gas from the Hibiki Liquid Natural Gas Terminal currently under construction in Wakamatsu Ward, Kitakyushu to Shingu Town. Dubbed the Northern Kyushu Line, construction will begin on the 60km pipeline in February 2014 and is slated for completion by December 2020. The total cost of the project is estimated at ¥22 billion. An existing pipeline currently supplies gas to the Fukuoka area, but the company determined a second pipeline was needed to ensure a stable supply of gas in the event of an accident or disaster.
