Williams Expects Atlantic Sunrise to be in Service in Aug. ORANGE BEACH, Ala. (DTN) -- Williams Partners L.P. said Wednesday (7/18) in a news release that construction is nearing completion on the Atlantic Sunrise natural gas pipeline with full service expected to begin in the second half of August, assuming timely receipt of the remaining regulatory approvals. Atlantic Sunrise, a 1.7 Bcf/d expansion of the existing Transco pipeline, will connect Marcellus natural gas supplies with markets in the Mid-Atlantic States and the U.S Southeast. A portion of the mainline component of Atlantic Sunrise with 550 MMcf/d capacity has already been placed into service, Williams said. Greenfield construction on the Pennsylvania portion of the project began in September 2017. Construction of Atlantic Sunrise has included installation of approximately 200 miles of large diameter pipeline, two greenfield compressor stations, and modifications of compressor stations in five states. Williams said a segment of the project known as the Central Penn Line will be jointly owned by Transco and a third party. Williams Partners owns and operates more than 33,000 miles of pipelines and is engaged in activities across the natural gas value chain including gathering, processing and interstate transportation of natural gas and natural gas liquids. Tulsa, Okla.-based Williams owns approximately 74% of Williams Partners. (c) 2018 DTN. All rights reserved.
