Jim Burgham, IBEW Local #64 (Youngstown) business manager, was among those invited to attend a dedication ceremony for the NiSource Hickory Bend cryogenic natural gas processing plant in New Middletown today, an event also attended by Ohio Gov. John Kasich and NiSource’s CEO.
NiSource Midstream and Hilcorp affiliate Harvest Pipeline partnered to form Pennant Midstream, which developed the $375 million gathering and processing system on 90 acres along State Line Road here. Union electricians from IBEW Local 64, part of NECA-IBEW Electricians, were among the four highest-utilized building trades on the construction of the facility.
“We welcome the opportunity to work with Chapman, the contractor out of Pittsburgh, and NiSource to show the quality workmanship, productivity, value and on-time, on-budget performance the union crafts are capable of,” Burgham said.
