Rivervale South to Market Project Completed

Rivervale South to Market project has been successfully placed into full service, Williams said. The project is an expansion of the existing Transco natural gas pipeline system to meet growing heating and power generation demand for northeastern consumers.

“The demand for clean, reliable natural gas is at an all-time high, particularly in the northeastern markets where it has had a direct impact on significantly improving regional air quality,” said Alan Armstrong, president and CEO of Williams. “The Rivervale South to Market project will continue this progress in a manner that minimizes environmental impacts by enhancing and expanding our existing Transco pipeline infrastructure.”

The construction on the Rivervale South to Market project began in early 2019. A portion of the Rivervale South to Market project (140,000 dekatherms per day) was placed into service on July 1, 2019. The remaining portion of the project (50,000 dekatherms per day) was placed into service on Sept. 1, 2019.

The project will provide 190,000 dekatherms of firm natural gas service by uprating 10.3 miles of existing Transco pipeline, adding less than a mile of new pipeline looping, and upgrading or modifying existing facilities, all in New Jersey. With this expansion, the Transco pipeline’s system-design capacity is increased to 17.2 million dekatherms per day.


Williams' Gulf Connector Project Placed into Full Service, Connects to 10,000 Miles of Pipeline

Williams announced that its Gulf Connector Project has been placed into service. The project will further connect the Transco Pipeline with global LNG markets and expand its delivery capacity by 475 million cubic feet per day.

“Since 2017, Williams has now added more than two billion cubic feet per day of capacity to directly serve global LNG export facilities,” said Alan Armstrong, president and chief executive officer of Williams. “Projects like Gulf Connector, which leverage existing gas pipeline infrastructure, make it possible to connect abundant domestic supply with emerging international markets, giving a boost to the U.S. economy while helping meet the world’s increasing demand for clean energy.”

Williams is well-positioned to take advantage of the LNG demand growth surge since its Transco pipeline passes through every U.S. state with an LNG export facility currently under construction.

Transco is one of the largest interstate natural gas pipeline systems, delivering natural gas to customers through approximately 10,000 miles of pipeline and extending nearly 1,800 miles between South Texas and New York City.

Williams Partners, Southern Gas Expand Pipeline Capacity to Serve Natural Gas Markets in Georgia

Williams Partners announced today that its Dalton Expansion Project, co-owned with Southern Company, is now in service to provide additional natural gas service in northwest Georgia.

The Dalton Expansion Project, approved by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) in late 2016, is an expansion of Williams' existing Transco pipeline system. It adds 115 miles of new steel pipe from Coweta County, Georgia to delivery points in Paulding and Murray Counties, Georgia.

The Dalton Expansion Project is "one of several Transco projects creating much-needed access to gas supplies in the northern portion of Transco's system to meet growing demand in the South," said Frank Ferazzi, senior VP of Williams Partners' Atlantic-Gulf operating area.

The expansion increases capacity on the Transco pipeline system to 14.2 million dekatherms of natural gas per day.

Williams' Transco System Delivers Record-High Volumes to Warm East Coast

Williams' Transco interstate pipeline is delivering record-setting volumes of natural gas to the U.S. East Coast to meet high demands from recent cold weather conditions.

Williams' 10,200-mile Transco system, the world's largest natural gas pipeline, set a new delivery record on January 8 by delivering 13.7 million dekatherms of natural gas in a single day. The last record-high was 13.5 million dekatherms on January 5, 2015.

Natural gas prices in 2016 were the lowest they had been in 20 years despite the upswing in demand from severe winter weather in the states. Although natural gas supply continues to surpass demand in the U.S., solutions to help consume some of that production are underway, such as more LNG export facilities and petrochemical plants as well as an increase in pipelines that will export natural gas to Mexico.

The Transco pipeline stretches from Texas through the Southeast up to New York and is the fastest-growing interstate natural gas transmission pipeline system. Expansion projects to increase capacity on the line in 2017 are underway.
