Transco seeks FERC approval for New York Bay Expansion project

Transcontinental Gas Pipe Line Co. LLC (Transco), a wholly owned subsidiary of Williams Partners LP, has filed an application with the US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission for its New York Bay Expansion project, which will deliver additional natural gas to New York City in time for the 2017-18 heating season.

Earlier this year, Transco placed into service two other major New York City natural gas pipeline projects, the Rockaway Delivery Lateral and the Northeast Connector. These facilities are providing additional supply to the 1.8 million customers served by National Grid in Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island, and Long Island.

The New York Bay Expansion is designed to deliver an additional 115,000 dekatherms/day of gas into National Grid’s distribution system through the Rockaway Delivery Lateral and the Narrows meter station.

The New York Bay Expansion Project, which is estimated to cost as much as $130 million, will include installation of additional horsepower at three existing Transco compressor facilities, in addition to uprating Transco’s existing Lower New York Bay lateral and replacing about ¼ miles of 42-in. pipe in Middlesex County, NJ. The project also will include modifications to existing Transco meter and regulator stations in Middlesex County, NJ; Chester County, Pa.; and Richmond County, NY. The work is confined to existing company property or rights of ways.
