Nicor Gas, the largest subsidiary of AGL Resources, is an energy company headquartered in Naperville, Illinois. Founded in 1954, Nicor Gas serves more than 2 million customers in 641 communities. Its service territory encompasses most of the northern third of Illinois, excluding the city of Chicago. Nicor has 32,000 miles (51,000 km) of pipelines, with an annual sendout exceeding 5,000 billion cubic feet (BCF) and a designed peak day delivery of 5.2 BCF.
Milhouse began work with Nicor Gas in 2013 to provide issued for construction drawings for various gas main replacement projects. A majority of these projects are for Nicor’s Investing in Illinois program, which facilitates the replacement of old cast iron and bare steel main.
Milhouse has completed a cumulative total of 70+ miles of main replacement projects for Nicor. Milhouse evaluates designs for public improvement projects that may require gas main relocations. The public improvement projects create opportunities for Milhouse to work with other design firms to resolve potential gas main conflicts, thus saving Nicor money. In addition, Milhouse performs engineering services for pressure improvement projects, vault repair/replacement projects, and large main horizontal directional drilling projects, as well as field work for electronic locates.
