McGlone welcomes Planning Approval for ‘Gas to the West’ project

SDLP MLA for Mid Ulster Patsy McGlone has welcomed planning approval for SGN Natural Gas and Mutual Energy’s ‘Gas to the West’ project. The £250 million investment in infrastructure will connect Cookstown, Magherafelt, Dungannon, and Coalisland to the existing natural gas network. The Mid Ulster MLA attended a ‘Gas to the West’ update presentation by SGN Natural Gas and Mutual Energy in Dungannon on Tuesday 14th June.

Mr McGlone said, “I welcome the latest stage of the ‘Gas to the West’ project. The project’s partner companies are now ready to move to full construction phase. It is expected that there will be many new jobs and procurement opportunities created locally during this phase.

“This is a very significant investment in our infrastructure and our economy by SGN Natural Gas and Mutual Energy.

“When completed the people of Mid Ulster will, for the first time, have access to a natural gas network and a new energy option for households and businesses in the area.”
