The Sabal Trail pipeline is said to be in operation by the end of June 2017. The 515 mile pipeline transports natural gas from Alabama, through Georgia, before terminating in Florida (US)

 

Sabal Trail Transmission Spokeswoman, Andrea Grover, stated: "Certain facilities and the mainline pipeline will be operation in the next week or so, and the remaining facilities are still on track for a full commercial in-service by the end of June.”

The company is currently testing the entire pipeline route, in preparation for it to go online.

Grover noted that, though the project, approximately 1200 construction workers in Alabama were employed, with over 6000 workers employed for the entire project.

Despite the pipeline being prepared to go live, the project is still opposed by some.

The WWALS Watershed Coalition (WWALS) – which advocates for conservation and stewardship of the Withlacoochee, Willacoochee, Alapaha, Little and Suwannee River watersheds in south Georgia and north Florida – is not happy about the pipeline.

WWALS President, John Quarterman, stated: “We've always did a lot online and through legal angles, and we're going to continue doing a lot of that … If we hear about a sink hole or a leak, we'll be there taking pictures."
