In early January Williams’ Transco pipeline delivered a record amount of natural gas to meet demand driven by recent cold weather conditions along the U.S. Eastern Seaboard.
The nation’s largest-volume natural gas transmission system, Transco delivered a record-breaking 13.7 million dekatherms (MMdt) on Jan. 8.
The Transco system, which stretches from South Texas to New York City, also established a new three-day market area delivery record Jan. 7-9, averaging 13.6 MMdt.
Completed expansions to the Transco system in 2015 and 2016 contributed to the new volume records in early January. Virginia Southside (250,000 dekatherms per day or dth/d), Northeast Connector (100,000 dth/d), Mobile Bay South III (225,000 dth/d), Leidy Southeast (525,000 dth/d) and Rock Springs (192,000 dth/d) have all been placed in service in the last 22 months to serve customers’ demand for power generation, industries and local distribution.
Transco is the nation’s largest and fastest-growing interstate natural gas transmission pipeline system. It delivers natural gas to customers through its 10,200-mile pipeline network whose mainline extends nearly 1,800 miles between South Texas and New York City. The system provides cost-effective natural gas services to U.S. markets in the Southeast and Atlantic seaboard states, including major metropolitan areas in New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania, as well as international markets.
