Fluor & Clean Energy Partner to Build 2 OH NatGas Electric Plants

Last week Fluor Corporation, a global engineering, procurement, fabrication, construction and maintenance company that designs, builds and maintains big facilities like electric power plants, announced a deal with Clean Energy Future to build a new natgas-fired electric plant in Lordstown, as well as a second plant in Oregon (Lucas County), OH. The new Lordstown project is being called the Trumbull Energy Center and is due to be built and online in 2020. This is terrific news for the Utica/Marcellus industry. The Trumbull project will be another 940-megawatt plant, same as the Lordstown project under construction now, and the Oregon project will be a 955-megawatt project. Together these two new plants have the potential to use something like 185 billion cubic feet (Bcf) of natural gas per year–a staggering number…
