NJNG Puts Southern Reliability Link On Map

Posted on

New Jersey Natural Gas (NJNG) has proposed the 28-mile Southern Reliability Link (SRL) to support the safe, reliable, resilient distribution of natural gas to their customers. The SRL will provide a major interstate connection between New Jersey Natural Gas’ distribution system that serves customers in Ocean, Burlington and Monmouth counties and the interstate pipeline system adjacent to the New Jersey Turnpike. By reinforcing the supply of natural gas with a second feed from a separate interstate supplier into the southern end of NJNG’s system, the SRL will help mitigate potential customer interruptions, enhance system resiliency and ensure safe, reliable natural gas service for the region.
  The SRL will also strengthen the reliability and resiliency of the natural gas distribution system that serves the Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst (Joint Base) and supports its critical mission. Additionally, the SRL will allow the Joint Base to access natural gas in locations closer to its facilities, thereby making it more economical. This creates opportunities for the Joint Base to install equipment that is more efficient and reduce operating expenses with low-cost natural gas.
