Transco Holds Open Season for Service to DC Market

Williams Cos. is holding an open season through Aug. 17 for firm transportation service on its Transcontinental Gas Pipe Line system to serve natural gas markets in the metropolitan Washington, DC area.

New service from the so-called "Potomac Expansion Project," which will consist primarily of looping, is expected to be available in November 2007, subject to the approval of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, the Tulsa, OK-based energy company said.

Up to 150,000 Dth/d of incremental firm transportation will be made available from Transco receipt points in Guilford and Rockingham counties, NC, to certain Transco mainline delivery points in Maryland, it noted.

"We continue to have strong growth in our market area, including the Washington, DC metropolitan area," said Phil Wright, senior vice president of Williams' natural gas pipeline business. For more information on the open season, contact Helen Laughlin at (713) 215-3773.
