Transco Asks FERC to Authorize Leidy Southeast Project
October 17, 2013
Transcontinental Gas Pipe Line Company, LLC (“Transco”) recently filed an application with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (“FERC”) for authorization to construct and operate the Leidy Southeast Project. According to the application, the Leidy Southeast Project would involve the installation of approximately 30 miles of new 42-inch pipeline and associated facilities in Northeastern Pennsylvania and Northern New Jersey. The new pipelines, if approved by FERC, would be used to transport gas produced in North Central Pennsylvania. Transco asked FERC to issue a certificate of public convenience and necessity for the Project by August 1, 2014, so that the company could meet its targeted in-service date of December 1, 2015.
