Williams-Dominion Announce Plans For 240-Mile Keystone Connector Pipeline

Posted on

Williams and Dominion plan to form a joint venture to market and develop a new pipeline to transport up to 1 Bcf/d of natural gas produced in the Rockies and Appalachian basins (including the southern Marcellus Shale) to growing markets in the Eastern and Mid-Atlantic regions. The proposal, to be known as the Keystone Connector, would extend from the terminus of the Rockies Express pipeline in eastern Ohio to Williams’ Transco Station 195 in southeastern Pennsylvania. Williams and Dominion will be working with potential shippers to determine the level of interest in the proposal. 

If present schedules hold the 240-mile pipeline could be placed into service by 2013.
