Sabal Trail Transmission LLC has awarded contracts for its 513-mile Sabal Trail pipeline that will transport natural gas from mid-Alabama through Georgia and into central Florida in Marion County. Price Gregory has been awarded contracts for spreads one, four and five; MPG P/L has been awarded a contract for spread two; Troy Construction has been awarded a contract for spread three; and Rockford Corp. has been awarded contracts for spreads six and seven.
The new pipeline system will expand the state’s access to additional sources of natural gas throughout the U.S. This will help reduce the state’s reliance on offshore sources and lessen its vulnerability to fuel supply interruptions that can occur in the Gulf of Mexico region during severe tropical weather. Completion is scheduled for 2017.
