Chesapeake Utilities and TECO Peoples Gas partner on Callahan Pipeline, Florida
Chesapeake Utilities' Florida subsidiary, Peninsula Pipeline Company, has entered into an agreement with SeaCoast Gas Transmission, an affiliate of Tampa-based TECO Peoples Gas to jointly develop the Callahan Intrastate Pipeline, bringing additional natural gas capacity to Nassau and Duval Counties. The new supply source will enable both Florida Public Utilities Company, another Chesapeake Utilities subsidiary, and PGS to expand natural gas distribution service in this growing area of Florida. FPU and PGS previously worked together in 2012 to introduce natural gas service to Nassau County. The estimated cost of the pipeline is $65M, to be split between both companies. Construction is set to begin next month with a target in-service date of September 2020.
