PLANS to expand gas storage in Cheshire will involve some construction work in Runcorn.

The Keuper gas storage project plans to develop further gas storage within the Holford Brinefield in Middlewich.

Construction work will involve extending an existing brine pipeline at the main Ineos ChlorVinyls site.

The project will provide brine to Ineos’ businesses at Runcorn.

An information day is being held on Wednesday, May 7, from 2pm to 8pm, at The Pavilions, Sandy Lane, Runcorn WA7 4EX.

If approved, the project is set to start in 2017 and could be operational from 2020.
