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 GPI, June 23, 2014; May 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.
