Project Need

Sabal Trail Transmission, LLC (Sabal Trail), a joint venture of Spectra Energy Corp, NextEra Energy, Inc. and Duke Energy, is proposing to design, construct and operate a nearly 500-mile interstate natural gas pipeline to provide transportation services for power generation needs to Florida Power and Light ("FPL") and Duke Energy of Florida ("DEF") beginning in May 2017.

Additional pipeline infrastructure will also benefit the Southeast region of the United States by making available additional supplies and new energy infrastructure to support other regional power generators and the growing demand for clean-burning natural gas. Sabal Trail will increase energy diversity, security and reliability to these Southeast markets.

Sabal Trail will continue engaging with landowners and stakeholders, as well as begin planning for surveys in order to maintain a schedule to meet the May 2017 in-service date.

Quality of Life

Every day, Americans commute to work, charge their phones and do a number of activities that require reliable energy. But how often do we take a moment to stop and consider where our energy comes from?

Meeting the expanding energy needs of the Southeastern markets and a beautiful environment is not mutually exclusive. Wherever possible, the new pipeline will follow existing right-of-ways to substantially limit environmental impacts.
