• Dominion Rural Valley Station

    Dominion Transmission operates one of the largest underground natural gas storage systems in the United States. This system links to major pipelines and markets in the Midwest, Mid-Atlantic and Northeast regions of the U.S. With over 7,800 miles of pipeline throughout six states, Dominion stores and transports natural gas for a variety of markets within the utility industry.

    In recent years, Western Pennsylvania has seen an increase in natural gas discoveries within the Marcellus shale formation. Because of this increase, Dominion constructed additional outlets for the natural gas.

    Dominion’s Rural Valley Station, located in Kittanning, Pennsylvania, chose an Ariel JGZ/4 and an Ariel JGC/4 to compress 57,500 cubic feet of natural gas daily. Constructed in 2010, the Rural Valley Station is designed to transport natural gas originating from the Big Springs area of McKean County. The natural gas eventually arrives in Armstrong County, home of the Rural Valley Station. Once compressed, the natural gas is transported to Dominion’s Oakford station in Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania where it is distributed to market.
