Williams Partners L.P. announced yesterday that it has placed into service the facilities constructed as part of Phase 2 of the Garden State Expansion Project, an expansion of the Transco pipeline system designed to deliver 180 000 dth/d of additional natural gas capacity to New Jersey Natural Gas. Phase 1 of the project was placed into service in September 2017.
“The Garden State project highlights our continued execution on projects designed to enhance existing infrastructure, ensuring a reliable supply of clean energy to meet our customers’ natural gas needs,” said Alan Armstrong, Chief Executive Officer of Williams Partners’ general partner. “As demonstrated by this continued high-level of demand, Williams Partners is well positioned to serve the natural gas needs of markets up and down the eastern US – ensuring consumers continue to benefit from reliable, affordable, American-made energy.”
The project provides firm transportation from Transco’s Zone 6 Station 210 Pooling Point in Mercer County, New Jersey, to a new interconnection on its Trenton Woodbury Lateral in Burlington County, NJ. It consisted of the installation of a new compressor station, meter and regulating station in Burlington County, NJ, in addition to modifications and the addition of compression at an existing Transco compressor station in New Jersey.
New Jersey Natural Gas provides service to more than half a million customers in New Jersey’s Monmouth, Ocean, Morris, Middlesex, Sussex and Burlington counties.
Transco, the nation’s largest-volume and fastest growing interstate natural gas pipeline system, is a wholly owned subsidiary of Williams Partners L.P. Transco delivers natural gas to customers through its 10 200 mile pipeline network whose mainline extends nearly 1800 miles between South Texas and New York City.
