Williams To Seek FERC Approval For Mid-South Expansion

July 2010 Vol. 237 No. 7

Williams Partners L.P. anticipates filing an application with the FERC this fall seeking approval to construct the Mid-South Expansion project.

Subject to approval by the FERC and other agencies, the proposed expansion includes 23 miles of pipeline, a compressor facility in Dallas County, AL and upgrades to existing compressor facilities in Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina. The capital cost of the project is estimated to be $214 million.

The Mid-South Expansion project is designed to provide service on the Transco natural gas pipeline to the city of LaGrange, GA, Progress Energy Carolinas, Inc., and Southern Company Services, Inc. It is being developed to be constructed in two phases: 95,000 Dth would be placed into service in fall 2012 and 130,000 Dth in summer 2013.
