FERC Says Atlantic Sunrise Pipeline Can Start Shipping Gas

Law360 (October 4, 2018, 5:28 PM EDT) -- The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission on Thursday gave Williams Cos. the green light to put its $2.65 billion Atlantic Sunrise gas pipeline expansion project into service, even as the D.C. Circuit continues to mull a challenge to the commission's approval of the project.

FERC, which approved construction of the project in February 2017, granted Williams' August request in a one-page letter. The Atlantic Sunrise project is part of a multibillion-dollar expansion of Williams' Transcontinental Gas Pipeline, an interstate system, to transport 1.7 million dekatherms of gas per day from Pennsylvania to markets in the mid-Atlantic and southeastern United States.
