Commonwealth Journal reports: A team of engineers from Texas has just completed identification of 15 control and monitoring points along Somerset’s natural gas pipeline system in Eastern Kentucky, Somerset Mayor Eddie Girdler said this week. With the monitoring system in place, Somerset Gas Company engineers, from control panels at the Energy Center, can open and close valves, directing the flow of natural gas to most profitable destinations. Power to operate the control mechanisms along the pipeline system will be done with electricity where available and with portable generators at most other locations. Solar panels may provide power at a few locations where sufficient sunlight will generate energy, Girdler noted.

The latest weather reports suggest that strong demand will continue to dominate in the short term, although there is scope for a gradual shift to more moderate demand and conditions during next week.
