Posted on

FERC has approved Williams’ request to place into service Phase I facilities of the Garden State Expansion Project in Burlington and Mercer Counties, New Jersey.

According to FERC’s J. Rich McGuire this authorization is based on a review of the company’s most recent construction status reports and a field inspection conducted Aug. 22, 2017. McGuire added that Williams has adequately stabilized areas disturbed by construction and restoration is proceeding satisfactorily.

The Garden State Expansion Project includes the installation of a new compressor station, meter and regulating station on land located in Burlington County, N.J. along with modifications and additional 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 2 expected to be completed in fourth quarter 2017.
