A new video provides a quick, high-level overview of Williams’ Northeast Supply Enhancement project, which has been designed to expand the existing Transco natural gas pipeline system in the northeastern U.S. by the 2019/2020 winter heating season.

The Northeast Supply Enhancement project will increase Transco pipeline deliveries to National Grid — the largest distributor of natural gas in the northeastern U.S. — by 400 million cubic feet per day (enough natural gas to serve the daily needs of about 2.3 million homes).
Once complete, the project will help provide affordable, clean and reliable energy to northeastern consumers, including the 1.8 million customers served by National Grid in Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island and Long Island.
Williams filed a 7(c) application with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) on March 27, 2017 (Docket No. CP17-101). FERC will prepare an environmental evaluation using information included in the Certificate Application. If FERC determines that the project is environmentally acceptable – and is satisfied the project is in the public interest – it will issue an Order granting a Certificate.
