Hosting a tele-Townhall on May 5, NFIB opened a forum for discussion on a proposed 182-mile natural gas pipeline expansion project that would traverse Pennsylvania, connecting it to mid-Atlantic and southeastern states by 2017.
The Transcontinental Gas Pipe Line Company LLC (Transco), which transports natural gas from production areas to customers like utilities and power plants in the eastern U.S., handles over one-third of the gas consumed in Pennsylvania. The Williams Company is developing the proposed expansion, known as the Atlantic Sunrise Project.
NFIB invited the Atlantic Sunrise Outreach team to join the town hall meeting, where participants were able to lay out issues and raise questions related to the project’s economic benefits and land-use issues, which could potentially impact area NFIB members in Susquehanna, Wyoming,
Luzerne, Columbia, Schuylkill, Northumberland, Lebanon and Lancaster counties.
Two compressor stations are also being added in Wyoming and Columbia.
The project is expected to support over 8,000 jobs and generate approximately $1.6 billion in additional wages, revenues and investments to the regional and state economies of both Pennsylvania and Virginia. The majority of the direct expenditures will be in Pennsylvania, with some materials and labor sourced from other states.
With the inclusion of northern Pennsylvania gas-producing regions, the Atlantic Sunrise Project is designed to supply gas to over seven-million American homes.
