FERC has approved Williams’ request to change to the crossing method from a dry, open-cut to a conventional bore of Euharlee Creek, located in Bartow County, Georgia, as part of the Dalton Expansion Project.
The Dalton Expansion Project consists of 115 miles of new steel pipe ranging from 16 to 30 inches in diameter extending from the existing Transco pipeline in Coweta County, Ga., and providing service to new delivery points in Paulding and Murray Counties, Ga. The pipeline is being designed to transport approximately 448,000 dekatherms of natural gas per day.
In addition, Williams will construct a new compressor facility in Carroll County, Ga., as well as three new metering facilities and other related pipe and valve modifications to existing facilities.
The project is expected to be in service in Mid 2017.
