Dover, Delaware — Sandpiper Energy (“Sandpiper”), a subsidiary of Chesapeake Utilities (“Chesapeake”), announced that it will host an information meeting to share plans for converting residents in Ocean Pines, Maryland from propane to natural gas service.  The information meeting will be held at the Ocean Pines Community Center beginning at 6 p.m. on March 10, 2016.  The forum will feature information stations for residents to get details and ask questions regarding billing, customer service, safety, and learn more about the conversion and connection processes.


Sandpiper and the Ocean Pines Association finalized an agreement in December, 2015, that allows Sandpiper to bring natural gas to the community.  The conversion process has begun on a limited basis for those residents adjacent to Beauchamp Road and St. Martins Lane as well as areas within Newport.


Postcards will be sent to the residents who are next in line to be converted.  The postcards will highlight the week when our technicians will be in their area to answer questions, perform appliance evaluations, and ultimately set a temporary propane tank.  It also includes the phone number, 1-855-290-9628, that can be called if there should be any questions or if the residents are unavailable that week to meet with the technicians.


A map depicting the preliminary order for the areas to be converted will be made available on the Sandpiper Update section of the Ocean Pines Association’s webpage.
