Williams Companies’ CEO, Mr. Alan Armstrong has announced that the company is set to complete two natural gas pipeline projects in New Jersey and Louisiana by the end of 2024. The New Jersey project involves setting up a new electric motor-driven compressor facility in Gloucester County, New Jersey, and the construction of a 22.3-mile, 30-inch pipe lateral in Luzerne County, Pennsylvania, and a 13.8-mile, 42-inch pipe loop in Monroe County, Pennsylvania. Mr. Armstrong shared that the first phase of the 0.83-billion cubic feet per day (Bcf/d) Regional Energy Access expansion in New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Maryland would provide about half the project’s gas to customers in the fourth quarter of 2023.
Williams Companies shared that the project is designed with the aim of minimizing environmental impacts by maximizing the use of existing Transco infrastructure and rights of way. The preliminary design of the project consists of additional compression and selected new loop segments along the existing Transco corridor. The company reached a final investment decision in June 2022 to build its proposed Louisiana Energy Gateway (LEG) project to gather natural gas produced in the Haynesville shale basin. The project will move 1.8 billion cubic feet per day (Bcf/d) of gas to several Gulf Coast markets, including its Transco gas pipe from Texas to the U.S. Northeast, industrial consumers and LNG export plants.
