A New Generation...A Multi-User Spaceport
A natural gas distribution infrastructure was built in 1994 to support the activities at KSC. The system was expanded in 1999 to Cape Canaveral Air Force Station (CCAFS). Natural gas is used as the main fuel source for heating plants at Vehicle Assembly Building (VAB) and at the Industrial Complex, which provide hot water for building heating and domestic hot water purposes. The main pipeline runs through KSC property but is owned by Florida City Gas (FCG), the local natural gas utility. The main 12” natural gas pipeline enters KSC where NASA and Kennedy Parkways intersect. An 8” branch line continues to serve CCAFS. FCG is responsible for the gas main from its station off of NASA Parkway up to and including meters to various facilities in the VAB and Industrial areas of KSC. KSC contractors are responsible for operation and maintenance of natural gas systems downstream of the meter stations.
