Williams Partners L.P. and its wholly owned subsidiary Transcontinental Gas Pipe Line Company, 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 Dth of firm natural gas transportation service and increased reliability to a local gas distribution company along the New Jersey coast that was affected by Superstorm 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 phase in 2017.
The project is in addition to the $4.3 billion in capital expenditures planned through 2017 on Transco growth projects that Williams Partners has previously announced.
