Florida Gas Transmission Co. applies to expand network

The Florida Gas Transmission Co., which operates Florida's largest and longest-running natural gas pipeline network, filed an application at the end of October with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to expand its pipeline network.

The $2.4-billion, 483.2-mile project, announced earlier this year, will largely expand compression capacity and add wider pipelines along existing pipeline routes from the Panhandle through south Florida, passing through Citrus, Hernando, Hillsborough and Pasco counties. A little more than 117 miles will be built along new routes, including a 16-mile pipeline in north Manatee County.

Construction is slated to begin in 2010, and the project is slated for completion in 2011. Affected landowners will soon be receiving information packets.

Several public hearings have been held on the project. More meetings will be held next year.
