Texas Eastern Transmission (Texas Eastern) has received US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) approval to place into service facilities associated with the Lambertville East Expansion Project in Hunterdon County, New Jersey, USA.

In December 2017, Texas Eastern filed an application with FERC to construct, install, own, operate, and maintain the Lambertville East Expansion Project. The project’s purpose is to expand the compression facilities at the Lambertville Compressor Station located in West Amwell Township, New Jersey, to provide incremental pipeline transportation service to existing city-gates in New Jersey on behalf of two local utility customers, PSEG Power LLC and Elizabethtown Gas, as well as to comply with new air emissions regulations under the New Jersey Reasonably Achievable Control Technology program.

Texas Eastern installed two new 8600 hp (6415 kW) Solar Taurus 70 turbine compressor units, replacing to two existing Clark DC-990 turbine compressor units at the station. In addition, Texas Eastern performed system maintenance activities for certain facilities at Texas Eastern’s existing Lambertville Compressor Station, including the removal of four retired reciprocating compressor units and associated building, coolers, and auxiliary equipment.
