FERC OKs WB XPress Construction

Posted on

FERC has approved TransCanada’s request to construct facilities in Randolph, Pendleton, Grant, Hardy, Clay, and Braxton Counties, West Virginia and Fairfax, Shenandoah, and Warren Counties, Virginia for the WB XPress Project.

According to FERC’s Nancy Fox-Fernandez, for activities associated with the horizontal direction drill along Line VA-1,  the company will adhere to the Fairfax County noise ordinance hours, other than the possible exception of extended hours for pullback activities.

Once completed, the WB XPress Project will deliver up to 1.3 Bcf/d of Appalachian supply to expanding Mid-Atlantic markets, as well as Gulf Coast markets via a downstream, third-party interstate pipeline expansion from an existing interconnect in West Virginia.

The project is expected to be placed in service in the second half of 2018.
