Williams Partners is seeking approval from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) for the Rivervale South to Market project in the northeastern United States.
The work will involve the uprating of 16.70 km of Transco pipeline together with upgrades and alterations of existing pipeline facilities, all in New Jersey. The project will provide incremental service to customers in this growing American market.
Uprating is the technical term used to describe the process to boost the permissible operating pressure in a pipeline that is not being fully used per its design capability.
The Rivervale South to Market project is one of many Transco expansion projects presently being developed. The pipeline is scheduled to become operational by 1 November 2019 with a capital cost of $127 million.
