Sunshine State to benefit from new project

Staff Reports

Sand. Surf. And, of course, Disney World.

Florida is a popular place.  More than 20 million people now call it home, according to the U.S. Census.

With all that growth comes the need for more natural gas for electric power generation and other uses. Williams Partners is playing an important role in moving that additional gas to the Sunshine State.

In May, we expect to begin construction on the Hillabee Expansion Project, which the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission recently approved.

“We’re excited to move forward as planned with this critical piece of infrastructure to help meet long-term natural gas needs in Florida,” said Rory Miller, senior vice president of Williams Partners’ Atlantic-Gulf operating area.

“The Hillabee expansion is among several fully contracted interstate pipeline projects Williams Partners is executing on to connect North America’s abundant natural gas supplies to demand growth from the local distribution, electric power generation, industrial and LNG export businesses.”
