‘Gas to Listowel’ project progressing well

The company recently held a drop-in information event to update residents on progress.

Work began on the project during 2017, with the laying of a natural gas feeder main pipeline from Barrigone, Co Limerick to Listowel town, via Ballyhahill, Co Limerick and Moyvane, Co Kerry, with local natural gas distribution networks being constructed in each of these locations.

To date, 39 of the planned 41kms of gas pipeline between Barrigone in County Limerick and Kerry Ingredients in Listowel has been completed. Cleaning and connecting sections of pipeline and pressure testing is now underway, in preparation for commissioning the pipeline, which is planned for March 2018.

The construction of the local gas distribution network in Listowel town, Ballyhahill and Moyvane, which will service local homes and businesses, is scheduled to begin in mid-March, making gas available to customers in these areas later in 2018.

Fran McFadden, commercial connections manager, Gas Networks Ireland, said: “We are delighted to be extending the natural gas network and progressing into Listowel town. Initial feedback from residents and businesses in the town is showing that there will be a strong demand for natural gas.”
