FERC Authorizes Williams to Expand Pipeline for New York Markets

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) issued a certificate of public convenience and necessity to Williams authorizing the Northeast Supply Enhancement (NSE) project – an expansion of the existing Transco natural gas pipeline designed to serve New York markets.

The project will expand existing Transco pipeline infrastructure in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and New York primarily by looping – placing new pipe alongside of existing pipe parallel to the existing right-of way. 

The project facilities consist of about 10 miles of 42-inch pipeline looping facilities, three miles of onshore 26-inch looping facilities, 23 miles of offshore 26-inch looping facilities, the addition of 21,902 horsepower at an existing compressor station, a new 32,000 hp compressor station and related facilities.

The NSE will provide 400.2 Btu/d of additional natural gas supply to National Grid, the largest distributor of natural gas in the northeastern United States. If all goes as scheduled, construction will begin in the fall of 2019, and the project should be in service in time for the 2020 winter heating season. P&GJ
