DEP To Hold Oct. 5 Virtual Hearing On Proposed Transco Natural Gas Pipeline Regional Energy Access Expansion Project In Eastern PA

The Department of Environmental Protection will hold a virtual hearing October 5 on the proposed Transcontinental Gas Pipe Line Company’s
Regional Energy Access Expansion Project.  (PA Bulletin, page 5568)

The project route will be in three counties in the Northeast Region (Luzerne, Monroe, Northampton), 3 counties in the Southeast Region (Bucks, Chester, Delaware), and one county in the Southcentral Region (York). However, the Project will not require earth disturbance in Delaware and York counties. 

The Project will consist of new pipelines, a new gas-fired turbine driven compressor station, addition of gas-fired turbine driven compressor units at existing compressor stations, modification and uprate of existing compressors, abandonment of existing gas-fired compressors, modifications to existing compressor stations, modifications to existing pipeline tie-ins, addition of regulation controls at an existing valve setting, and modifications to existing regulators.
