Williams adds more Marcellus gas into service in northeast U.S.

Williams Partners (WPZ +0.2%) says the remaining natural gas supply on its Transco Northeast Supply Link entered service on Friday, marks the first major expansion of the Transco pipeline designed specifically to connect supply from the Marcellus shale with northeast U.S. markets.

The WPZ line is the fourth in the region that recently entered service, with Spectra Energy (SE) and Kinder Morgan Partners (KMP) both announcing new pipelines and upgrades that are expected to temper northeast natural gas prices this winter.

The expansion pushes Transco's total system capacity past 10B cf/day, enough gas to serve more than 42M homes.
