FERC has approved Williams’ request to proceed with construction of new Compressor Stations 605 and 610, as well as the use of the Rausch Creek Contractor Yard in Wyoming, Columbia, and Schuylkill Counties, Pa., respectively, for the Atlantic Sunrise pipeline project.
The Atlantic Sunrise pipeline project includes the following:
- Approximately 183 miles of new greenfield pipe (Central Penn North & Central Penn South)
- Two pipeline loops totaling about 12 miles (Chapman Loop, Unity Loop)
Two and half miles of existing pipeline replacement
- Two new compressor facilities in Pennsylvania
- Other facility additions or modifications in Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, and South Carolina
Once finished, the project will add 1.7 million Dth/d of pipeline capacity to Williams’ Transco system, and is expected to be placed in service in 2018.
