Project Need

Sabal Trail Transmission, LLC (Sabal Trail), a joint venture of Spectra Energy Corp and NextEra Energy, Inc. has been awarded a 474-mile interstate natural gas pipeline project by Florida Power & Light Company (FPL) to provide transportation services for their power generation needs 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.
