Williams Says Transco New Jersey Work Won’t Curb Deliveries

May 16 (Bloomberg) -- Maintenance on the Transco natural-gas pipeline in northern New Jersey won’t interrupt customer deliveries, Christopher Stockton, a Houston-based spokesman for Williams Cos., said in an e-mail.

“The work is related to a planned pipeline integrity test we are performing called a hydrostatic test, which involves filling the line with water to ensure it has no integrity issues,” Stockton said. “Gas is routed around the maintenance area to ensure deliveries remain whole.”

The pipeline operator was venting gas within the East Rutherford metering and regulating station today to prepare for the work, Deann Muzikar, a spokeswoman for Public Service Enterprise Group Inc., operator of New Jersey’s largest utility, said in an e-mail. Transco also notified PSEG of venting in Livingston, which was producing an odor, Muzikar said.

This controlled release, a standard operating procedure, began about 7 a.m. local time and ended today, Stockton said.

The Transco system can transport 9.7 billion cubic feet a day of gas across 10,200 miles (16,400 kilometers) from the Gulf Coast to the Northeast.
