Marcellus/Utica Gas Heading to Georgia via FERC-Approved Pipeline

Transco Pipeline Simple map

In March 2015, Williams announced that its Transco pipeline subsidiary had filed an application with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) for its Dalton Expansion Project, which will expand the Transco and flow more Marcellus Shale gas from New Jersey all the way to Mississippi, primarily for electric generation plants, but also for local natural gas distribution by utilities (see Williams Files with FERC to Expand Transco Pipeline from NJ to MS). Most of the Dalton’s project will be built in and benefit the State of Georgia–delivering natural gas to an existing electric generating facility in northern Georgia operated by Oglethorpe Power Corp., gas for local distribution company Atlanta Gas Light, and gas for the City of Cartersville. Transco has customers signed up under binding contracts for 100% of the Dalton Expansion Project, which will increase Transco’s capacity by 448,000 dekatherms per day of natural gas. We have fantastic news: FERC has approved the project! Construction begins now and the project will be fully online next year…
