Project Sabal trail tranSmiSSion llc, Sabal trail Project Planned comPreSSion: three compressor Stations Project detailS: Sabal Trail Transmission LLC has received FERC approval to commence construction of certain Phase 1 facilities associ- ated with its Sabal Trail Project. Sabal Trail Transmission, a joint venture of Spectra Energy Corp., NextEra Energy Inc., and Duke Energy, is proposing to design, construct, and operate a 515-mile (828-km) natural gas pipeline and associated facili- ties to provide transportation services for power generation needs to Florida Power and Light and Duke Energy of Florida beginning May 2017. The approved facilities include three compressor stations, six meter and regulating stations, and other appurtenant facilities. The compressor stations are: Alexander City Compressor Station – Construction of a new compressor station near Alexander City, Alabama, USA, with a total 71,000 hp (52,966 kW) of compression. Hildreth Compressor Station – Construction of a new compressor station near Lake City, Florida, USA, with a total 20,500 hp (15,293 kW) of compression. Reunion Compressor Station – Construction of a new compressor station in Osceola County, Florida, with a total 36,400 hp (27,154 kW) of compression. Project tranScontinental GaS PiPeline co., Hillabee exPanSion Project Planned comPreSSion: compressor Station 84 Project detailS: Transcontinental Gas Pipeline Co. (Transco), a wholly owned subsidiary of Williams Parnters LP, has received FERC autho- rization to begin construction of Compressor Station 84 in Choctaw County, Alabama. The new compressor station will include two 16,000-hp (11,936-kW) Solar Turbines Mars 100 gas turbine-driven compressor units. Compressor Station 84 is part of Transco's Hillabee Ex- pansion Project, which is designed to expand the existing Transco pipeline's capacity in Alabama beginning in the sec- ond quarter of 2017, supplying gas to the proposed Sabal Trail pipeline. The Hillabee Expansion Project is designed to be constructed in three phases, adding a total of approxi- mately 1,131,000 dt/day of pipeline capacity to the Transco system by 2021. Project tranScontinental GaS PiPeline co., Gulf connector exPanSion Project Planned comPreSSion: three new compressor Stations Project detailS: Transcontinental Gas Pipeline Co. (Transco), a wholly- owned subsidiary of Williams Partners LP, has filed an ap- plication with FERC to construct and operate its Gulf Connector Expansion Project, a two-phase expansion of Transco's interstate natural gas transmission system in Texas and Louisiana, USA. If approved, the project will enable Transco to provide 475,000 dt/day of incremental, year-round, firm transporta- tion service from Transco's Station 65 Zone 3 Pool in St. Helena Parish, Louisiana, southward along its mainline, to new delivery points in Transco's Zones 1 and 2. Phase 1 will provide 75,000 dt/day by a target in-service date of Septem- ber 1, 2018, and Phase 2 will provide another 400,000 dt/day by a target in-service date of January 1, 2019. As proposed, the Gulf Connector Expansion Project in- cludes construction of three new compressor stations, an interconnection with Cheniere Corpus Christi Pipeline, and piping and valve modifications at two existing Transco com- pressor stations to allow for bi-directional gas flow. Transco estimates that the project facilities will cost approximately US$167.4 million. In order to create the southbound capacity under the project, Transco will un- Information is gathered from Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) records and other public documents and is intended to provide details on construction projects that involve natural gas compression equipment. Every ef- fort is made to ensure the completeness and accuracy of the information presented; however, project details (including but not limited to dates, equipment, locations, etc.) are subject to change without notice.
