Company wants $2.1B natural gas pipeline for Pa.
HARRISBURG — Tulsa, Okla.-based Williams Partners says it's planning to seek approval for a $2.1 billion natural gas pipeline project in Pennsylvania that it hopes to complete in 2017.
Williams said Thursday that the proposed Atlantic Sunrise project is designed to transfer more natural gas from Marcellus Shale-producing areas in northern Pennsylvania to heavily populated East Coast markets.
The project will include adding capacity and compression to the Transco Leidy line near Wilkes-Barre and adding a new section, the Central Penn Line, to connect it to the Transco mainline about 100 miles away in southern York County.
It has yet to get permits or seek approval from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. Williams Partners is a subsidiary of The Williams Companies Inc., which operates 15,000 miles of interstate natural gas pipelines.
