Williams prepares to expand Southeast US pipeline

Pipeline giant plans major Southeast gas project - E&E News by POLITICO


Paperwork is expected to be filed soon with federal energy regulators by Tulsa’s Williams Cos. to move ahead with expansion of a large pipeline in the Southeast.

Williams has yet to publicly comment on the proposed Southeast Supply Enhancement project which would provide reliable natural gas delivers to Virginia, the Carolinas, Georgia and Alabama reported E&E News. The expansion would apply to the Transcontinental pipeline which runs nearly 10,000 miles from Texas to New York.

However, Williams on its website says it intends to “pre-file” with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission sometime in the next few months. Following the “pre-filing”, Williams would take the next step in the fall with an application to begin the expansion.

Williams CEO Alan Armstrong discussed the project in a November 2023 earnings call.
