National Grid NEC LNG

National Grid Northeast Energy Center Merchant LNG Plant

The Northeast Energy Center (NEC) project located in Charlton, MA will consist of a liquefied natural gas (LNG) facility, gas interconnection pipeline and gas meter station.  ODIN has supported the design baseline, initial project renderings, siting assistance, 30% engineering, DPU testimony and expert witness, and budgetary pricing.

The LNG facility, located at 304 Southbridge Road, is comprised of the following major and ancillary components:

  • feed gas pretreatment system
  • gas liquefaction system rated at 250,000 gallons per day
  • 2-million gallon full-containment, field-erected LNG storage tank
  • LNG truck-loading station with four bays (three with scales)
  • process control system as well as safety control, fire protection, hazard detection, and security systems
  • stormwater management infrastructure
  • other ancillary systems

Several additional structures will also be constructed on the site, including a control room building, power distribution & control (PDC) building, a nitrogen compressor building, and an LNG truck-loading station shelter. A perimeter security fence will surround the site that will allow controlled, secure access to the facility.

The facility will receive natural gas via a new approximately 5,400-linear foot interconnection pipeline extending from a new tap off of the existing Tennessee Gas Pipeline (TGP) interstate pipeline located on 190 Southbridge Road. The proposed interconnection will be a 10-inch diameter coated steel pipeline installed along the westerly side of the Route 169 (Southbridge Road) ROW. Interconnection pipeline construction will use a horizontal directional drilling (HDD) method at the two Cady Brook crossings.
