In a significant step towards improving the Gulf Coast’s energy infrastructure, the Transcontinental Gas Pipe Line Co LLC (Transco), under The Williams Companies Inc., has received approval from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) for its Texas to Louisiana Energy Pathway Project. With a budget of $91.8 million, the initiative is set to expand the existing Transco pipeline’s capacity across Texas and Louisiana, promising to enhance the region’s energy reliability and diversification. This expansion, anticipated to be operational by the first quarter of 2025, is expected to increase the pipeline system’s capacity by around 364,400 dekatherms per day (Dth/d)

Prior to the start of the project, Transco forged a 15-year agreement with EOG Resources Inc., ensuring full capacity coverage at a negotiated rate. The expansion strategy includes converting services, reclaiming transportation rights from current customers, and introducing new compression facilities including a notable 15,900 horsepower natural gas-driven turbine compressor station in Fort Bend County, Texas.
