FERC has approved Williams’ request to proceed with re-wheeling Unit 1 compressor at Compressor Station 303 as part of the New York Bay Expansion Project in Essex County, New Jersey.
The New York Bay Expansion Project consists of 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 finished, 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 completed in the fourth quarter of 2017.
