Long-Term Regional Gas System Master Plan

Members of the Firm assisted the City of Las Cruces, New Mexico and the Rio Grande Natural Gas Association in the development of a long-term regional gas system master plan. Key elements of this assignment included, the identification, for strategic decision-making purposes, of key options and policy issues associated with future operations of each system as currently structured and operated or as would exist should the two systems be merged; the development of a System Flow Network Model with the capability to simulate the high pressure gas distribution systems; the development of population/customer profiles; the identification of applicable national, state, and local regulations and codes that impacted system design and the costs of capital improvements; and, the development of capital improvement programs for both systems on both a stand-alone and merged basis.
