$1.6 Billion Benefit
The Atlantic Sunrise project will have significant positive impacts on local economies where construction occurs and beyond. Construction will create job opportunities and increase economic activity by $1.6 billion in project regions.
A lack of pipeline availability has prevented most energy consumers from realizing the advantages of this abundant domestic resource. That’s where the Atlantic Sunrise Project comes in.
It's no pipe dream. The U.S. is already the world's fastest-growing oil and natural gas producer. The U.S. can make progress toward the goal of energy independence by continuing to develop its own natural resources.
EXCEEDING SAFETY STANDARDS
Pipeline safety is our top priority. Planners of the proposed Atlantic Sunrise project have committed to adopt design features and operating practices that will exceed stringent industry and regulatory safety standards.
CROSSING AGRICULTURAL LAND
Williams understands the agricultural industry is vital to our country’s economy and well-being. That’s why we embrace construction practices which protect and reclaim the land back to prior production yields as soon as possible.
COMMITTED COMMUNITY PARTNERS
Williams is committed to being a good community neighbor and environmental steward. That’s why we established a fund to benefit local communities within the areas affected by the Atlantic Sunrise project.
Williams’ Transco pipeline provides reliable, economic transportation of natural gas – the most environmentally friendly fossil fuel – throughout the eastern U.S.
