Atlantic Sunrise Pipeline-
The Atlantic Sunrise pipeline is a project of Tulsa, Oklahoma-based Williams Partners. Williams currently operates the Transco system which has over 10,000 miles of pipeline moving gas to other businesses, like utility companies and power plants. The Atlantic Sunrise is a 180-mile $3 billion expansion of the Transco system. It’s designed to move gas from Susquehanna County in northeastern Pennsylvania, connect with an existing pipeline and travel as far south as Alabama. The line would go through 10 central Pennsylvania counties. It would carry the gas to markets along the eastern seaboard, including the Cove Point liquefied natural gas export terminal on the Chesapeake Bay. County residents have joined indigenous leaders in condemning the plans of Transco/Williams to run the Atlantic Sunrise Pipeline through confirmed Native American burial grounds and ancient archaeological sites located in southern Lancaster County.
