LINCOLN, Maine , June 10, 2013 (Bangor Daily News) -Bangor Natural Gas LLC and Lincoln Paper and Tissue LLC have inked a deal to extend a compressed-gas pipeline to the mill by late next year, officials said.

The pipeline will make the mill an oil-free facility and cut the energy costs of the town's largest employer by 40 percent, said Keith Van Scotter, co-owner of Lincoln Paper and Tissue.

The pipeline gas will also be available to residents and other area businesses, providing potential energy savings and a lure to new business and investors, Town Council Chairman Steve Clay said.
