FERC has approved Williams’ request to proceed with construction activities during daytime hours on September 24 and October 1, 2017, in order to complete work at the Morgan Meter and Regulator Station in Middlesex County, New Jersey, as part of the New York Bay Expansion Project.
According to FERC’s S. Xiah Kragie, Williams requested this change in construction work schedule to minimize disruption along the Lower New York Bay Lateral.
FERC has approved Williams’ request to place into service the approximately 0.30 mile of replacements of the Lower New York Bay Lateral as part of the New York Bay Expansion Project in Middlesex County, New Jersey.
The New York Bay Expansion Project includes the installation of additional horsepower at three existing Transco compressor facilities, uprating Transco’s existing Lower New York Bay lateral and replacing 0.2 miles of 42-inch pipe in Middlesex County, N.J. The project will also involve modifications to existing Transco meter & regulator stations in Middlesex County, N.J., and Richmond County, N.Y.
Once completed, it will provide National Grid with an additional 115,000 dekatherms of natural gas per day in time for the 2017/2018 winter heating season. The project is expected to be finished in the fourth quarter of 2017.
