Industry Brief

Williams' Transcontinental Gas Pipeline Corp. (Transco) received FERC authorization, with conditions, to build and operate its Rock Springs Expansion Project, which would carry fuel to a new gas-fired power plant in Cecil County, MD [CP14-504]. Rock Springs would involve construction of an 11.17-mile, 20-inch diameter pipeline lateral connecting Transco to Old Dominion Electric Cooperative's proposed Wildcat Point Generation Facility (see Daily GPIJune 23, 2014May 13, 2013). The lateral would have capacity of about 192,000 Dth/d. The power plant would have capacity of about 1,000 MW, enough to power 390,000 homes in the region. The project also would include a 4,000 hp electric compressor and metering facility at the end of the lateral in Cecil County, as well as other piping, valve equipment and modifications to existing facilities.
