BAILEYVILLE, ME, Sept. 19, 2011 (Bangor Daily News) -The Maine Bureau of Protection recently approved the linkage of Baileyville's mill - formerly Domtar and now Woodland Pulp LLC - to a natural gas pipeline. The conversion is expected to cost $12 million but will save millions in fuel costs for the company.

"The pipeline is under construction, as of last week," Scott Beal, mill spokesman, said this week. "We expect it to be active by the end of the year. This an absolutely amazing project for us."

The former Domtar pulp mill in Baileyville was bought a year ago by Grand Investment Corp. of China and Taiwan for $64 million and renamed Woodland Pulp LLC. The new owners are investing $12 million to convert the oil powered facility to natural gas.
