Transco is one of the largest integrated natural gas pipeline systems – a 16,415 km network – in the US, which could see an additional capacity of up to 296,375 dekatherms per day if the expansion receives FERC authorisation.
If approved, the Southeastern Trail Expansion Project will comprise the addition of approximately 12.4 km of 42 inch (1,067 mm) diameter pipeline which will loop facilities in Virginia, increased horsepower at Virginian compressor stations, and piping and valve modifications on facilities in South Carolina, Georgia and Louisiana to allow for bi-directional flow.
“Southeastern Trail is a critical project that will work to bring key supplies from interconnects in the Mid-Atlantic region to growing demand centres in the Southeastern US,” Williams Partners General Partner CEO Michael Dunn said.
“This vital project, along with additional expansion opportunities under development, will link low-cost supply to key customers in high-growth markets and continues the expansion of southbound capacity on the Transco pipeline system.
“Construction of this project along Transco’s existing corridor results in significantly less environmental impact and more economical transportation rates for our customers than other greenfield projects serving these same markets.”
