County Council renews pipeline agreement

It was nothing but love for Northwest Pipeline LLC at the Feb. 14 — Valentine’s Day — meeting of the Pierce County Council.

The council unanimously approved, 5-0, an ordinance granting Northwest Pipeline — an energy company that distributes natural gas, petroleum and diesel products to customers in the United States and Canada — a five-year renewal for location of certain pipelines on certain county rights-of-way.

According to information presented at the meeting, the franchise agreement with the energy company dates back to at least April 1976.

“I’m confident this bidirectional petroleum pipeline is working well and provides the needed fuel for our economy,” Councilmember Dave Morell said before the vote.
