Passyunk Plant P3 LNG Project

Philadelphia Gas Works (PGW) has submitted details of a proposed Public Private Partnership (P3) with Passyunk Energy Center (PEC) to the Philadelphia Gas Commission (PGC). The project, if approved, will facilitate the marketing and sale – by project partners PEC – of Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG ) to regional customers, with the potential to generate millions of dollars in additional revenue each year, through fees and revenue-sharing.

When it comes to LNG, PGW’s approximately 50 years of experience makes it one of the most qualified utilities in the country, and with this proposed project we can add millions in LNG revenue to the billions in savings that LNG has already brought to Philadelphia.
