Natural gas company Unitil expects to break its record for most new southern Maine customers for the second straight year when the final figures are tallied for 2013.

The news comes on the heels of Unitil’s announcement last week that the company has completed work replacing gas lines in Portland’s Old Port and the entirety of Westbrook, marking a milestone in the firm’s massive 14-year, $60 million Greater Portland upgrade project.

An unrelated $42 million project by Summit Natural Gas will establish gas lines through three towns just north of Portland — Cumberland, Yarmouth and Falmouth — starting next year.

Unitil’s service area ends on the coast at Portland.

The changes will also allow Unitil to increase the network from low-pressure distribution to high-pressure.

Unitil attracted nearly 1,000 new Maine customers in 2012 — at that point, its best year. Current year totals won’t be available until they’re finally tabulated in 2014, O’Meara said. The company has nearly 29,000 Maine customers in total and more than 73,000 across its coverage areas in this state, New Hampshire and Massachusetts combined...
