Natural Gas for Mesquite

March 29, 2018

During the 2015 Legislative Session, the Nevada State Legislature approved Senate Bill 151, which would allow for the expansion of natural gas service into areas not currently being served. Mesquite was one of the areas identified. Since that time the City of Mesquite has partnered with Southwest Gas to bring natural gas to the area.

On Wednesday May 30, 2018 the Nevada Public Utilities Commission approved Southwest Gas to expand its service area to include Mesquite.  The Commission's order approving Southwest's expansion to serve Mesquite, Nevada includes the following:

         Approved capital investment of approximately $28 million.

         Approved construction of approximately 17 miles of approach main and an additional 20 miles of distribution pipeline.

         The Senate Bill 151 Rate will be designed to recover 98.5% of the related revenue requirement from existing southern Nevada                  customers and 1.5% from customers in Mesquite.

         Southwest's service territory will be expanded to include the City of Mesquite and the portions of Lincoln County, Nevada that              are necessary for the installation of the approach main.

         Approved virtual pipeline proposal, which consists of constructing a portion of the distribution system and serving certain                    customers using compressed natural gas until the approach main and permanent gas supply is available.

Southwest Gas anticipates being able to provide natural gas service to certain customers in Mesquite using the virtual pipeline as early as the first half of 2019.
