Williams Partners Proposes Garden State Expansion

Posted on

Williams Partners LP and its wholly-owned subsidiary Transcontinental Gas Pipe Line Co. LLC announced a fully contracted expansion project designed to deliver 180,000 Dth/d of additional natural gas capacity for local distribution along the eastern seaboard.
  The Garden State Expansion project consists of additional compression to provide 180,000 dekatherms of firm natural gas transportation service and increased reliability to a local gas distribution company along the New Jersey coast that was affected by Hurricane Sandy. The $150 million project would provide firm transportation from Transco’s zone 6 station 210 pooling point in Somerset County, NJ to a new interconnection on Transco’s Trenton Woodbury lateral in Burlington County, NJ. Williams Partners plans to place the project into service in phases with the first phase in 2016 and the second in 2017, assuming timely receipt of necessary regulatory approvals.
