The Sabal Trail underground natural gas pipeline project originates in Alabama, stretches through Georgia and terminates in Florida and, at completion, will be nearly 500 miles in length - 476 miles of 36-inch-diameter and 22 miles of 24-inch-diameter pipeline.
Roughly 86 of those miles are located in Alabama. The current study corridor affects 4 counties in Alabama, including Tallapoosa, Chambers, Lee and Russell counties.
More specifically, the Sabal Trail project will include:
- Construction of approximately 463 miles of 36-inch-diameter mainline natural gas pipeline that originates in Tallapoosa County, Alabama and ends at an interconnection with Florida Southeast Connection’s proposed project in Osceola County, Florida;
- Construction of approximately 13 miles of 36-inch-diameter natural gas pipeline extending from a proposed compressor station in Osceola County, Florida to Florida Gas Transmission’s existing natural gas pipeline in Orange County, Florida;
- Construction of approximately 22 miles of 24-inch-diameter natural gas pipeline in Marion and Citrus Counties, Florida;
- Construction of five (5) new compressor stations in Tallapoosa County, Alabama, Dougherty County, Georgia, and Suwannee, Marion, and Osceola Counties in Florida; and
- Construction of six (6) new meter stations
We invite you to view the updated detailed maps of areas involved with the Sabal Trail pipeline project in Alabama by reviewing the below PDFs. These maps are draft photo-based alignment drawings which were submitted as part of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission ("FERC") Draft Resource Reports in June 2014 and filed with FERC in Docket No. PF14-1-000. These maps reflect the proposed route as of February 26, 2014. It’s important to note that even after the draft resource reports are filed, Sabal Trail will continue to assess and evaluate routes and alternatives. A description of our preferred route and all the reroutes considered will be filed in our formal application to FERC later this year.
