2017 Environmental Excellence Award – Stewardship

Congratulations to Williams for being selected as the 2017 winner of the SGA Environmental Excellence Award in the Stewardship category.

Cindy Ivey of Williams presented the winning program, Atlantic Sunrise Project Environmental Stewardship Program, at the 2017 Environmental, Safety & Health, and Training Conference held in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

Here’s a brief excerpt from the submission for the award:

The Atlantic Sunrise Project is designed to supply enough natural gas to meet the daily needs of more than 7 million American homes by connecting producing regions in northeastern Pennsylvania to markets in the Mid-Atlantic and southeastern states. The expansion will add 1.7 million dekatherms per day of pipeline capacity to the Transco system.

The project will consist of compression and looping of the Transco Leidy Line in Pennsylvania along with a greenfield pipeline segment, referred to as the Central Penn Line, connecting the northeastern Marcellus producing region to the Transco mainline near Station 195 in southeastern Pennsylvania. Additional existing Transco facilities are being added or modified to allow gas to flow bi-directionally.

The preliminary project design includes a total of approximately 183 miles of new greenfield pipe (Central Penn North & Central Penn South), two pipeline loops totaling about 12 miles (Chapman Loop, Unity Loop), two and half miles of existing pipeline replacement, two new compressor facilities in Pennsylvania, and other facility additions or modifications in five states (Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina).
