EDL to market Pennant Midstream’s landfill RNG
Pennant is a partnership between UGI Energy Services (UGIES), Harvest Midstream I, and a subsidiary of Williams Companies. Under the agreement, Pennant will transport the RNG from the Carbon Limestone Landfill near the city of Youngstown, Ohio, through its existing system and redeliver the gas to EDL’s downstream markets.
The Carbon Limestone Landfill gas, a by-product of naturally decomposing materials in the landfill, will be processed and conditioned by EDL’s largest North American RNG facility to meet Pennant’s gas quality requirements.
Once fully operational, the Pennant system will take up to 6,500 Mcf per day of RNG supply. Under a separate agreement, UGIES will manage the construction of an interconnecting pipeline and interconnection with Pennant.
“Agreements like this one announced today enable UGIES to utilise its best-in-class engineering and construction expertise to bring RNG to market while utilising the existing Pennant pipeline network,” said Anthony Cox, president of Pennant Midstream.
“This is an example of UGI and Pennant’s commitment to enabling renewable and sustainable energy projects using the breadth of our industry experience.”
Moving this RNG supply to market through EDL and Pennant’s system will provide benefits for the companies and local communities. Accepting delivery of the RNG from Carbon Limestone Landfill will reduce CO2 emissions by up to approximately 127,500 tonnes per year – equivalent to emissions from more than 27,700 passenger cars over one year.
James Harman, CEO of EDL, commented: “EDL has owned and operated an extensive portfolio of landfill gas-to-electricity plants across the US since 1998 and, in recent years, several large plants converting landfill gas to RNG.
“We are proud to leverage our waste-to-clean energy expertise through developments such as the Carbon Limestone RNG project, and to assist one of our key customers with its goal of decarbonising through renewable gas supply.”
The project is expected to become operational in early 2023.
