FERC has approved Dominion Energy Transmission, Inc.’s request to place into service the New Market Project in Chemung, Madison, Montgomery, Tompkins, Herkimer, and Schenectady Counties, New York.
According to FERC’s J. Rich McGuire, the company has adequately stabilized the workspaces associated with the project and that restoration of disturbed areas is proceeding satisfactorily. McGuire added that Dominion will continue to update FERC staff on remaining restoration activities in its biweekly status reports.
The New Market Project includes the addition of two new compressor stations along Dominion’s existing transmission pipeline, increasing compression at an existing station, adding or upgrading other metering and regulating facilities, and adding gas coolers at the company’s Borger, Utica and Bookman Corners’ stations.
Once completed, the project will add approximately 33,023 horsepower of compression to Dominion’s existing interstate pipeline transmission system and enable the delivery of additional supplies of natural gas to National Grid distribution areas to meet growing consumer demand.
