Garden State Construction Approved

Posted on

FERC has approved Williams’ request to construct the Chesterfield Meter Station, Compressor Station 203, and block valve J736 in Burlington County, New Jersey, and valves and tie-in piping in Chesterfield County, New Jersey for the Garden State Expansion Project.

The Commission also granted the company’s request to revise the overall limits of disturbance of the Project at Compressor Station 203 and Chesterfield M&R sites in order to shift impacts from forested wetlands to upland forest in the area of the stormwater basin and driveway to Chesterfield Meter Station.

The Garden State Expansion Project will include the installation of a new compressor station, meter and regulating station on land located in Burlington County, N.J. It will also require modifications and the addition of compression at an existing compressor station. Construction will be completed in two phases.

Phase 1

  • A new meter and regulating station on the Transco Trenton Woodbury Lateral in Burlington County, New Jersey
  • The uprate of an existing electric motor drive to 25,000 horsepower and modification of the associated compressor unit at an existing Transco compressor station in Mercer County, N.J.
  • Related appurtenant underground and aboveground facilities

Phase 2

  • A new 30,500 horsepower, electric motor-driven compressor station and associated electrical substation on the Transco Trenton Woodbury Lateral in Burlington County, N.J.
  • The uprate of two existing electric motor drives to 16,000 horsepower each and replacement of the associated compressor units at an existing Transco compressor station in Mercer County, N.J.
  • Related appurtenant underground and aboveground facilities

Once finished, the Garden State Expansion Project will provide up to 180,000 dekatherms per day of natural gas service to a new delivery point with New Jersey Natural Gas in Burlington County, N.J.

Phase 1 is expected to be completed in the first half 2017 with Phase 2 expected to be completed in fourth quarter 2017.
