Williams announces Marcellus-to-Alabama Transco open season

Williams Partners LP is holding a nonbinding open season to expand its Transco interstate natural gas pipeline, providing incremental firm transportation capacity to markets in northern Georgia and Alabama by 2016. The Dalton Expansion Project would ship up to 600 MMcfd from interconnections accessing Marcellus gas production at its Zone 6 Station 210 pooling point.

Penn Virginia Resource Partners last month announced a build out of its Marcellus gas gathering infrastructure, including tie-ins to Transco (OGJ Online, May 23, 2012). Royal Dutch Shell PLC, Southwestern Energy, Range Resources Inc., and Inflection Energy are among the producers contracted to ship on Penn Virginia’s gathering system.

UGI Energy Services Inc. also plans to extend its Marcellus gathering system to tie-in to Transco (OGJ Online, Oct. 21, 2011). UGI owns 14.7 bcf of underground gas storage in north-central Pennsylvania.

Final capacity, scope, and cost of the Dalton Expansion will be determined by results of the open season, which closes June 28.
