Williams files to provide extended natural gas service to Southeast

TULSA, Okla. - Williams on Feb. 2 announced that it has filed an application with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to expand its Transco natural gas pipeline by 308,500 dekatherms per day to serve markets in the Southeastern United States.
New service from the 85 North project would be available in two phases, subject to FERC approval. Phase 1 would increase capacity by 90,000 dekatherms per day by the summer of 2010, while Phase II would increase capacity by 218,500 dekatherms per day by the summer of 2011.
"Combined with our Mobile Bay South project, the 85 North expansion creates over half a billion cubic feet of take-away capacity from Station 85 to downstream markets," said Phil Wright, president of Williams' natural gas pipeline business. "The project is strategically positioned to provide Transco customers with access to more than three Bcf per day of new domestic and LNG gas supplies at Station 85 over the next few years."
