The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission recently approved Williams’ request to place its Atlantic Sunrise project into full service, according to Business Wire. The company plans to place the project into full service tomorrow.
Upon its completion, the project will increase the design capacity of the Transco pipeline by 1.7 billion cubic feet per day to 15.8 billion cubic feet per day. It will strengthen and extend the bi-directional flow of the Transco system, connecting Marcellus gas supplies with markets as far south as Alabama.
Construction began on the Pennsylvania portion of the project in September 2017. The project featured the installation of 186 miles of greenfield pipe, 12 miles of pipe looping, 2.5 miles of pipe replacement, two new compressor stations and compressor station modifications in five states.
