WALL, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Adelphia Gateway LLC, a subsidiary of New Jersey Resources Corporation (NYSE: NJR), announced that it is extending its Open Season for firm transportation capacity through December 8, 2017, in response to customer requests to provide a delivery interconnection with Columbia Gas Transmission in the Marcus Hook area, and in recognition of the time constraints presented by the Thanksgiving Holiday. Binding requests for capacity will now be accepted through 2 p.m. Central Standard Time on Friday, December 8.
Adelphia Gateway will operate an 84-mile pipeline with existing interconnections at Texas Eastern Transmission, LLC in Bucks County and Columbia Gas Transmission in Northampton County to Marcus Hook in Delaware County. The southern 50-mile portion of the pipeline will be repurposed to provide a clean, safe, low-cost supply of natural gas to the region. The northern 34 miles of the pipeline, extending from Bucks County to Northampton County, were converted to deliver natural gas in 1996. Once complete, Adelphia Gateway will be able to transport an incremental 250,000 dekatherms of natural gas per day, approximately 91 million dekatherms per year, providing a direct and flexible path for delivering locally produced natural gas to growing and underserved markets in southeastern Pennsylvania and beyond.
The project is expected to close following receipt of all of the necessary permits and regulatory actions, including those from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. The final size and scope, as well as the amount of capacity to be made available will be fully defined based on binding bids received in this Open Season. Adelphia Gateway expects to place the project into service in late 2018.
For more information on the open season, contact David Johnson or Jack Herbert at 848-206-8300 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
