Transco net­work sets records for gas vol­umes

Houston Chronicle - - BUSINESS -

The na­tion’s largest nat­u­ral gas pipe­line sys­tem is fun­nel­ing more gas than ever from Texas to help warm the East.

Tulsa-based Wil­liams said its crown jewel Transco in­ter­state pipe­line net­work de­liv­ered record-set­ting nat­u­ral gas vol­umes to meet de­mand driven by re­cent cold. A new sin­gle-day de­liv­ery record was set on Jan. 8, as well as a new three-day record Jan. 7-9.

The 10,200-mile Transco sys­tem stretches from the Texas Gulf Coast, where cheap and abun­dant Texas shale gas is col­lected, and piped through the South­east and up the East­ern Se­aboard all the way up to New York.

Wil­liams said it de­liv­ered 13.7 mil­lion dekatherms of nat­u­ral gas on Jan. 8, break­ing the pre­vi­ous high of 13.5 dekatherms on Jan. 5, 2015. One dekatherm is equal to 1 mil­lion Bri­tish ther­mal units.
