Fed's to Hold Gas New Pipeline Meetings

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission is planning to hold four public meetings throughout Pennsylvania next week to discuss a proposed expansion of the Transco natural gas pipeline system.

FERC regulates interstate pipelines. Last week the agency announced it would conduct an environmental impact statement on the project and is accepting public comments through August 18th.

Oklahoma-based Williams Partners operates the Transco system, which has over 10,000 miles of exisiting pipeline–moving gas to other businesses, like utility companies and power plants.

As part of a $3 billion project called Atlantic Sunrise, Williams is proposing 177 miles through Pennsylvania of new pipeline to connect Marcellus Shale gas to markets along the East Coast– cities like Baltimore, Washington D.C. and as far south as Alabama.

<span style="font-weight: bold">If approved by FERC, the pipeline would run through 10 Pennsylvania counties, including Columbia, Lancaster, Lebanon, Luzerne, Northumberland, Schuylkill, Susquehanna, Wyoming, Clinton and Lycoming.</span>

<span style="font-weight: bold">All of the meetings will be from 7 to 10pm (Williams representatives will available at an open house from 6-7pm, prior to the FERC meeting) :</span>
