The Atlantic Sunrise Pipeline Primer
illiams Company Inc. is proposing the Atlantic unrise Pipeline. (FERC Docket # PF 14‐8) WS
The Atlantic Sunrise Pipeline, or the Central Penn Line North and South would be a shortcut between the existing Leidy Line in Columbia County with the Transcontinental Gas Pipeline in Lancaster County. It s a greenfield pipeline, meaning it creates a new iRight‐Of‐Way (ROW). If constructed, Atlantic Sunrise will be 178 miles long, with at least 2 new compressor stations in Susquehanna and Columbia Counties, Pennsylvania. The pipeline would be an interstate line, meaning it requires a federal certificate of public convenience and necessity from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), as well as state permits from the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection for stream crossings, and air permits for compressor stations.
