The project consists of the expansion of the gas transmission network (high pressure and intermediate pressure) to the main towns in the west and north-west of Northern Ireland: Dungannon, Cookstown, Magherafelt, Coalisland, Omagh, Enniskillen, Derrylin and Strabane; it will connect the current transmission network to the outskirts of each town.
The project will enable a shift from the dependence on oil (and partly on coal), with environmental benefits and potentially lower energy costs. The project will be located in EIB cohesion priority regions.
