NYC natural gas projects to begin construction

Williams Partners’ (NYSE:WPZ) Transco is working on two projects to increase natural gas supply to Brooklyn and Queens.

The Transco pipeline, a major supplier of natural gas to New York City, is the nation’s largest-volume interstate natural gas pipeline system.

The two projects, the Rockaway Lateral and Northeast Connector, are among some $5 billion investments that Williams Partners will make to meet the growing demand.

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) on Feb. 28 published its final environmental review of Transco’s Rockaway Lateral and Northeast Connector expansions.

Construction is expected to begin in May and begin operations in November.

Previously, Transco’s Northeast Supply Link went operational last fall, delivering natural gas to the Northeast region.
