Transco Pipeline, owned and operated by Tulsa-based Williams Partners LP, delivered a record amount of natural gas last week to deal with a bitter cold snap on the U.S. eastern seaboard.
Williams reported that the interstate Transco moved an all-time high of 10.4 million dekatherms on Jan. 22. A dekatherm is roughly equivalent to 1 million British thermal units of energy.
Transco also set a three-day delivery record on Jan. 22-24, averaging 9.9 million dekatherms per day. The Transco is a 10,000-mile pipeline system from the Gulf Coast to the east coast.
