SKW Enterprise Solutions, Inc. (SKWESI) has been selected by Hickory Run Energy, LLC (Hickory Run) to design and construct a fuel gas delivery facility and infrastructure to supply fuel gas to the new Hickory Run Energy Station under construction in Lawrence County, Pennsylvania.

For this project, SKWESI, a wholly owned subsidiary of Shafer, Kline & Warren (SKW), will provide surveying, engineering, design, fabrication and construction services for the 1.25 mile fuel gas delivery pipeline, including a meter skid and filter separator capable of delivering up to 90,000 MSCFD. Associated instrumentation, valves, a cathodic protection system and radio based SCADA interface are included in SKWESI’s scope of supply. The project is scheduled to be completed in 2018. The Hickory Run Energy Station is scheduled to be operational in the first half of 2020.

“SKWESI has extensive experience metering and delivering natural gas”, said Jim Buri, assistant division manager of Energy Services at SKWESI. “Their project teams have delivered meter skids and transmission line designs for 30 years; this type of turnkey project is a perfect fit for them. This project is an outstanding opportunity for Vince Mattione’s team to collaborate and deliver both the measurement and transmission elements of the project.”

The Hickory Run Energy Station will be a highly efficient natural gas-fired, combined cycle power plant with an electric generating capacity of up to 1,000 MW located strategically among the Marcellus and Utica natural gas production areas. When the project is complete, the power generated by the new station will be delivered to the PJM Interconnection.

SKWESI focuses on operational efficiency and delivering long-term profitability for its clients. Its EPC delivery of skidded hardware, measurement buildings and all the related instrumentation and controls enables the firm to streamline projects to ensure delivery of the highest quality design and installations on time and within budget.
