Transco expansion helps meet growing heating and power generation demand

Williams has successfully placed into full service its Rivervale South to Market project – an expansion of the existing Transco natural gas pipeline system to meet growing heating and power generation demand for northeastern consumers.
The Rivervale South to Market project provides 190,000 dekatherms of firm natural gas service (enough natural gas to meet the daily needs of about 1 million homes) by uprating 10.3 miles of existing Transco pipeline, adding less than a mile of new pipeline looping, and upgrading or modifying existing facilities, all in New Jersey.
“The demand for clean, reliable natural gas is at an all-time high, particularly in the northeastern markets where it has had a direct impact on significantly improving regional air quality,” said Alan Armstrong, president and chief executive officer of Williams. “The Rivervale South to Market project will continue this progress in a manner that minimizes environmental impacts by enhancing and expanding our existing Transco pipeline infrastructure.”
