Williams Gets FERC Approval Garden State Expansion Project

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) has approved an application from Williams Partners L.P. for Transco’s Garden State Expansion Project, a fully contracted expansion project to deliver 180,000 dekatherms a day of additional natural gas capacity for local distribution to thousands of customers in New Jersey.

The Garden State Expansion Project consists of additional compression to provide firm natural gas transportation service and increased reliability to New Jersey Natural Gas, which serves more than half a million customers in New Jersey’s Monmouth, Ocean and parts of Morris, Middlesex, Sussex and Burlington counties.

The project will provide firm transportation from Transco’s Zone 6 Station 210 Pooling Point in Mercer County, N.J. to a new interconnection on its Trenton Woodbury Lateral in Burlington County, N.J. Williams Partners will coordinate with New Jersey Natural Gas on construction dates and other activities.

The Garden State project is part of Williams Partners’ 2016 growth capital funding plan that includes US$1.3 billion for Transco expansions and other interstate pipeline growth projects.
