Interstate pipeline projects that provide for future growth and supply in our service territories. We have large pipeline investments that are fully subscribed under long-term contracts with utilities, earning FERC-regulated returns. Our joint ventures include a 50% ownership of Southern Natural Gas or SONAT, which vastly expanded our miles of transmission pipeline when Southern Company completed that transaction in 2016:
Gas storage facilities play a vital role in ensuring a reliable supply. With proximity to both interstate and intrastate pipelines, natural gas storage facilities provide an efficient and dependable supply of natural gas to consumers, businesses and utilities. Stored gas is particularly valuable when production or delivery is compromised, such as in the aftermath of a hurricane. Additionally, building storage inventory levels in the low demand summer months ensures that sufficient supplies are available for the winter heating season.
