Williams starts open season on Atlantic Access Transco expansion

Williams Partners LP is holding a binding open season until Apr. 2 for the remaining capacity on Atlantic Access, a proposed expansion of its Transco interstate natural gas pipeline. The project would connect gas supplies in western West Virginia and Pennsylvania to the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, Southeast, and Gulf Coast. The partnership has a binding precedent agreement from a shipper for half of Atlantic Access’ 1.8 bcfd initial capacity.

Proposed facilities include about 350 miles of new pipeline extending from Marshall County, W.Va., and Butler County, Pa., to Williams' Transco Compressor Station 195 in York County, Pa.

Customers subscribing to capacity on the project can choose from three separate paths originating from Marshall County, W.Va., Butler County, Pa., or Bergen County, NJ. Each would transport gas southward on the existing Transco system to all points on the mainline, terminating in Transco Rate Zone 3 in Beauregard Parish, La.

UGI Energy Services Inc. last year announced plans to extend its Auburn Gathering System to a Transco interconnect in Luzerne County, Pa., entering service third-quarter 2013 (OGJ Online, Oct. 21, 2011).

Williams Partners expects Atlantic Access to enter service by late 2014 subject to regulatory approvals, with final capacity determined by shipper interest.

Williams owns 74% of Williams Partners, including the general-partner interest.
